WHAT TO POST FIRST: in 200-300 words, consider the ways in which the four theorists that we've read are SIMILAR and DIFFERENT. To do so, consider the Gertrude Stein exercise that we did in class: How would these four different theorists view that reading experience? How would they explain what happened. In some ways, they would see it through very similar lenses, using different vocabularies. In other ways, mainly in terms of their purpose in discussing reading, they might have different feelings/ideas about the Stein experience (Smith is interested in what they brain is doing; Rosenblatt is interested in teaching; Iser is interested in Literature with a capital L; Freire is interested in critical, life-changing literacy). To the best of your abilities, try to apply the reading theory we've been exploring in class the past few weeks using an actual reading experience to do it.
ONCE YOU'VE POSTED, RESPOND: Here is a second chance to deepen your original ideas. In about 100 words, enter into a conversation with another one of your colleagues.
Please post and respond by the end of class time on Wednesday, 13 November 2019 (7:25 PM).
