Here is a presentation that I made using Presentme.com. I was supposed to do it and write down my thoughts from a photographical PowerPoint. I forgot to do that for the first five minutes. It is my second time using it. I hope it is still okay. I was trying to use it to solidify my thoughts about the different chapters. The different reading response theories are so dense and they have so much to consider. I probably should have written down my thoughts after each chapter but I didn't want to stop. To me, after he was through with the textual theories, it was easier to understand. I had no idea that when we look at reading response theories there is so much to consider from the different point of views. Point blank-what does it have to do with me in my classroom? I need to think about the text I am using as per Smith and then consider different perspectives as I go. So much to consider. I am glad I read it after I read Rosenblatt because it made so much sense to me. Purves was so easy and enjoyable to read. Please click on the link below to access.
