    • ASSESSMENT BLOG HIGHLIGHTS 11  CD: Both students and teachers should be assessed.  CS: …my goal as a teacher is to teach students how to think for themselves.  HS: No matter what the assignment was, however, I would always strive for it to be meaningful, not too tedious for the student to complete (or for me to grade) and help the student grow and develop as a literary-minded reader, writer, and speaker.  RP: …as a student I‟ve found that it is more helpful when grades are left by the wayside and the teacher instead provides individual and thoughtful comments for the students  PB: Assessment should be a gauge of whether or not a student understands the content, not “did they get the question right on a specific day?”  SG: A teacher‟s self-assessment is probably most critical because there is ample experience to learn from and adapt for future success.  BP: …assessment is something that is constantly occurring amongst teachers and students both formally and informally.  MD: A teacher must continually assess the present state of the student‟s understanding, comprehension and behavior in order to construct a productive learning environment.  MB: English is one of the content areas that is graced with the opportunity to assess many different areas.  MD: English causes me to actually think and express myself using the knowledge I have obtained through reading.

    • 7 HABITS OF PROFICIENT READERS (ELLIN OLIVER KEENE)  http://prezi.com/dp6u3kecgkcc/7-habits/ 20
    • TRANSACTIONAL THEORY (READER RESPONSE) LOUISE ROSENBLATT  A “mutually shaping” exchange between reader and text  Both text and reader are changed as a result of the reading  “Transactional theory proposes that the relationship between reader and text is much like that between the river and its banks, each working its effects upon the other, each contributing to the shape of the poem. “  (p. 157 FOURTH Edition) 21
    • THE ELEMENTS OF THE TRANSACTION: THE “PLAYERS” 22 READER  Reader brings their version of the world to the reading experience  Literacy skills  Personal experiences  Educational experiences TEXT  Simply ink and paper until a reader reads it… no “intrinsic” meaning MEANING • Meaning is made when the reader‟s mind and the text TRANSACT; meaning can be: • symbolic • evocative • imagistic • emotional • conceptual • the “meaning” happens only in the reader's mind and it occurs via the act of reading • reader selects to have an efferent or aesthetic stance toward his/her transaction with the text
    • EFFERENT READING:  Rosenblatt states, "the reader's attention is primarily focused on what will remain as a residue after the reading -- the information to be acquired, the logical solution to a problem, the actions to be carried out.” 23
    • AESTHETIC READING:  Rosenblatt states, "In aesthetic reading, the reader's attention is centered directly on what he is living through during his relationship with that particular text.” 24
    • THE READER-RESPONSE THEORY: IMPLICATIONS FOR LITERACY INSTRUCTION  Teachers may not lead classes along to preordained conclusions.  Primary responses are considered and examined by themselves and others  Classroom atmosphere is cooperative  The conception of literary knowledge is expanded (Who “owns” knowledge?) 25
    • TIME TO DO AN ACTIVITY!  Please number the activities from 1-4 in the order that you‟d like to “tackle” it  Efferent to Aesthetic Text Sort  Shakespeare  Narrative Text  Poetry  1 = “I would LOVE to do this one… I hope I get it!”  4 = “Ummm… if I hafta, I guess I‟ll do it…” 26
