This workshop showcases the reader as critic. Here, you will become part of the discussions that evolve as the readers look at Alice Walker's Revolutionary Petunias and Langston Hughes' Theme for English B. The readers examine the author's craft, the structure of the text and its various literary elements, and choice of language in order to evaluate both works as pieces of literature. They also objectify and analyze their personal journeys through the texts. Dr. Langer encourages teachers of readers by pointing out how the techniques readers used here can be explored in their classrooms.

In order to show how readers move into and out of each of the stances as they build their envisionments, this workshop focuses on two extended discussions among the groups of readers.
