Approaches to Reading with Multiple Lenses of Interpretation
Troise, Melissa
English Journal, v96 n5 p85-90 May 2007
High school teacher Melissa Troise challenges students to recognize the relationships that exist between literary theories, such as Marxism, feminism, and postcolonialism, and urges students to expand their contexts for reading texts by accessing and combining theories. Troise believes theory provides students with the potential to better understand unfamiliar ideas and ideologies, even if they may not agree with them.
