Synopsis:

No one has contributed more to our understanding of the relationship between readers and texts than Louise Rosenblatt. Her classic Literature as Exploration - now in its fifth edition - introduced the transactional theory of reading and pioneered a revolution that continues today in classrooms where reading and literature are taught.

She maintains that both the reader and the text are essential to the making of meaning. The reader is active, drawing on a reservoir of past experience to interpret the marks on the page. The implications of Rosenblatt's theory range from ideas about instruction methods to ruminations on authority in the classroom, on the page, and in our everyday reading lives.

Making Meaning with Texts brings together some of Rosenblatt's most important work, essays from the 1930s through the 1990s that explore the breadth and depth of her theory. She speaks directly to you, the teacher. In three parts - Theory; Practice: Education; and Practice: Criticism - she gives body to her ideas. The transactional approach expressed in 1938 has been widely adopted and remains vitally important to you today. This is a professional resource that you will return to again and again.

About the Author: Celebrated author and educator Louise Rosenblatt is Professor Emerita of New York University and a former faculty member at Barnard College, Columbia University and the City University of New York. She received the most recent of many accolades in 2003, when she was presented with lifetime achievement awards from both the National Council of Teachers of English and the National Research Conference.
