Reading Is About More Than 'Evidence'

Reading Is About More Than 'Evidence' | Literacy | Scoop.it
When students approach reading as only an exercise in seeking out evidence, as the common core recommends, they risk missing out on the value of reading for intrinsic literary value, writes Mia Hood.

It was warm July day when I met David Coleman he claimed his now infamous statement: “As you grow up in this world you realize that people really don’t give a shit about what you feel or what you think… it is rare in a working environment that someone says, ‘Johnson I need a market analysis by Friday but before that I need a compelling account of your childhood.’ That is rare” (captured on this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pu6lin88YXU). Reading is more than evidence, but perhaps Coleman has been generally misunderstood--everyone is jumping on this statement and the references to close reading and the four corners of the text, but the standards are not describing affective reading. Could they? Perhaps it would have been "nice" had they included joy of reading or pleasure in reading, but how would that be measured and by whose yardstick. As I read this piece in EdWeek, David Coleman's words reverberate in my ear and by connecting the text to my recollections and my academic understandings of affective value to reading comprehension, I posit that I could legitimately invoke the YouTube text within performance task that allows me to support my personal feelings with intellectual evidence and substantiate my agreement with the author. Oh, yes...a bit more work than just saying "She took my thought." But much more the fulfillment of my own actualization.
