Reader Response Theory

Directions  

–Read the following chapters in Essentials of Children’s Literature, 9th edition. —

Chapter 8: “Fantasy and Science Fiction” —

Chapter 9: “Realistic Fiction”   —

Chapter 10: “Historical Fiction” —

Chapter 12: “Literature for a Diverse Society” —

Go to a library or a good book store. The GCC library has many Newbery Award winners on reserve for your perusal. You need to read three Newbery Award winning chapter books. I prefer you choose books that cover three different genres as explained in the chapters read for this assignment from our course textbook (example: one book that is fantasy, one that is historical, and one that is representing a diverse society).

–Write a response for each of the three selections you read.  

–Use “Reader Response Theory” to write your responses. Reader Response Theory is a theory that asserts in the end, it is the informed reader, the text in that reader’s hands, and the analysis that occurs which informs a reader.

 Think about it this way: A response is your thoughtful reaction to the text. What did you like? What puzzled you? How do you think children would react?  How might you use these books and their themes in a classroom setting or at home?  Would the settings affect the approach? How do these works compare to other chapter books you have encountered? Above all, enjoy the books. They are award winners because they are the favorites of children, and I hope you’ll find inspiration therein as well.

Rubric Your response essay must:

–show evidence of you having read Chapters 8, 9, 10 and 12 from Essentials of Children’s Literature 9th edition and three Newbery Award winning chapter books.

–be a minimum of 1000 words.
