Reader Response Theory

Reader Response Theory Dr. Faughey Oyster Bay High School 10-24-17 With a partner, discuss What are you reading? Where do you read most often? Why do you read? Are your personal responses to a text affected by where and why you are reading? Be prepared to share your partners responses.

Checking in What are we doing? Why are we doing it? Where are we going? We are learning about Reader Response Theory. We are learning about theory in order to develop our

awareness of different perspectives and interpretations of literature. You will be using one of the theories we learn about when you analyze your independent reading books for your own analysis paper. We are using Reader

Response Theory to analyze a poem. We will continue using Reader Response Theory tomorrow when we use it to analyze three poems. Reader Response Theory Reading situation

Circumstances surrounding the reading. Meaning What is being read. Text Reader Person engaged in

reading Scenario 1 What factors are influential on the reader, the situation, and the text? A senior is assigned to read a chapter from the book he is studying in English class. The senior has tickets to see a show that night but knows that there will be a quiz on the chapter the next day. He is a strong reader but has not enjoyed the book the class is studying.

How would these factors impact the students ability to make meaning of that chapter? Scenario 2 How did the reader, situation, and text impact the ability to make meaning? A senior is part of a group of four students preparing a presentation about optical illusions. She volunteered

to do Internet research to find information to bring back to the rest of the group. She is a computer whiz and is fascinated by the topic. She spends several hours on the Internet finding examples of optical illusions but hasnt done much real reading or investigating of the information about optical illusions. The next day in class the group is expecting some material to read, but the senior brings a collection of optical illusions to show them instead. The elements of Reader Response Criticism Annotate and share out lines that are essential to understanding the

meaning of RRT. Explain. My Papas Waltz, by Theodore Roethke After studying the poem, free write to explore your perception or your initial interpretation of what is happening.

Using Reader Response Theory to analyze poetry Dr. Faughey Oyster Bay High School 10-25-17 Write a short written response What a poem means is the outcome of a dialogue between the words on the page and the person who happens to be reading it; that is to say, its meaning varies from person to person.
