Nevertheless, the contemporary literary theory, as Appleman (2015) states, “literary theories provides lenses that can sharpen one’s vision and provide alternative ways of seeing.” (p. 22) Therefore, these critical lenses will provide students, teacher’s, to perceive a different perspective of how to read their world. Student’s will be taught explicitly, which can lead to multiple contexts such as culture, curriculum, classroom, personal experience, prior kowledge, and politics. The teacher will introduce the students’ to a knowledge of becoming enlightened witnesses. They will be able to critize the texts with the ultimate authority of teaching different ways of reading. As Appleman (2015) mentioned, “literary theory provides the interpretive tools young people need to recognize and “read” those cultural forces.” (p. 30) Therefore, the contemporary literary theories will guide students to understand the texts and the outside world with different

Often people can find themselves relating closely to the experiences, thoughts and the beliefs which indicate the shaping of our character. Reading provides us with a type of image that we can create, as we can relate to character or we create them through our knowledge of learning and reading the characters and what we seem them to be whether it is ourselves or someone with morals that fits the character role.
Reflective Statement: Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Chronicle of a Death Foretold In our interactive oral discussion, as a class we touched on many different aspects of not only the novel but, how the novel connected with our lives. We were asked questions that genuinely made us think and the discussion as a whole opened our eyes and helped us each in gaining a better understanding of our classmate’s mindset. One question that we discussed was “How could two different readers perceive the novel differently?” The answer to this question is simple, yet complex in many ways. Thoughts on a novel can be interpreted differently as alike as people can generally have different beliefs. When it came to our very first discussion question,
Within literature the students get the chance to learn about other things like, time (century), the setting, people in that time (behavior) and about the general environment.

Our teacher asked us to listen to an English song, try to write the lyrics and catch the meanings. The teacher prepared the answer sheet with some lyrics, so we could guess what we needed to fill in the blanks. It was not just a listening practice but also a reading practice. I liked this type of subjective classes at Junior high school. However, the English class was getting boring as high school examination approached.

In my AP English Literature course, my class and I have read many work of literature and have done multiple of timed write essay. I gained the experience of having to find my strengths and weaknesses in English. An aspect that I am in lack of when writing my essay would not be the part of fully analyzing my claim of the prompt but instead of having to complete my essay under a time restraint. Thus, I have been improving my stress level in being calm when fully analyzing the prompt under a time restraint. The times that my class and I have peer graded many of the other graded essays from the the previous sitting AP exams have helped me to view what the AP exam grader are looking for and what I need to do in order to pass my AP exams.
The types of reading I have done are Intensive and Extensive Reading. The types of reading that I enjoyed are Intensive reading because I learned new words in order to expand my vocabulary such as the Shattering Glass vocabulary include prowess means skill, groused means complained, circumvented on the routine means went around and shepherd means led. The types of reading that I found the difficult are Extensive Reading such as reading On The Sidewalk Bleeding Quiz because it builds confidence within the reader while I was reading one paragraph out loud in front of my classmates. I can demonstrate the ability to read and to respond to a variety of texts because I would respond to questions that I already know and I would go to the challenging questions at the end or I would ask for clarification from my teacher. I can demonstrate the ability to understand the organizational structure/ features of informational, narrative and graphical texts because it helps me remember important information and it helps me understand the information.
2.1.3 Students’ Roles and Responsibility in Literature Circles One of the special aspects about literature circles is that every student has a particular role to play during the discussions. These roles allows students to approach the text from different perspective and look closely at specific aspects of the text (Brown, 2009). There are eight roles include four basic roles-a discussion director, a literary luminary, a connector and an illustrator as well as four optional roles-a summarizer, a vocabulary enricher, a travel tracer, and an investigator (Daniels, 1994). The information about eight roles is provided below: 1. Discussion director: The job is to make a list of thought provoking questions and maintaining flow of the discussion.
