The act of reading
I’m going through some old notes and questions… found this quote and these questions (but no reference):
“In the act of reading, the reader applies different sets of standards and expectations to suit the varied kinds of print material typically read.” These standards and expectations are formulated and refined as the reader matures and grows more fully conscious of the interrelationships among language, the genres of writing, and reality.”
— how does this relate to children as novice readers, untrained in traditions?
— how does this relate to children’s literature as a separate market?
— and to the construction of time through fiction? (or history, reality, relationships, etc.)
