Full Description

Recasting the Text, a companion volume to Learning the Landscape, provides activities that help students explore multiple ways of reading and re-creating a text in various forms. Examining the concept and uses of intertextuality among works from diverse times, places, and peoples, students see how individuals re-read and re-see human experience through stories. By creating texts themselves and reading clusters of texts from similar sources, students gain new perspectives about the processes of reading and writing.

Recasting the Text thoroughly integrates the language arts, utilizing ways of knowing to which students respond most keenly: observing, analyzing, imagining, and reflecting. Students will deal with language and literature experiences through a range of media that includes writing, drawing, and performing, as well as discussion. All strategies have been tested in classrooms across the country and are based on current learning-through language theory.

This book can be used alone or as a supplement to any literature and language text. It is especially suitable for grades ten through twelve.
