Learning Objectives

After viewing this program, participants will be able to:

  Observe the value of the envisionment-building process, both for personal reading experiences and literary experiences within the classroom.

  Identify the four stances as unique relationships to the text, each one offering an opportunity to add layers of meaning to an envisionment, in a nonlinear order.

  Examine possible questions that a teacher may frame literary discussions around, in order to enrich students' experiences with the text by adapting a variety of perspectives.
