Sample text

This difference is less noticeable in the Way Home vignettes, because the children discussed possibilities for explanations for the text. They had the book in front of them and reviewed pages to further their discussion. In the Otherwise vignette, the children engaged in more of a retelling of the narrative rather than creatively finding solutions to its meaning. This may in part be due to the nature of the text which already had a narrative structure, although in Otherwise this is only visually and musically presented and there are no words.

In the same way that Donaldson describes the process of learning as ‘grappling’ with the world (1978), so the reader grapples with the text to make sense of it, bringing their own past experiences to support them. Rosenblatt’s (1978) seminal work highlights the importance of the ‘transaction’ between reader and text, recognizing that the reader brings with them their own experiences, expectations and motivations which affect the meaning that is constructed, making reading a situational event. A sociocultural perspective on reading not only incorporates the transactions between text and readers, but also recognizes the context of the reading activity, which is affected by time and place, and the variables in readership (RRSG, 2002), which relate to the reader’s prior knowledge, motivation and experience.

When readers make meaning together, and draw on each other’s ideas and experiences to engage with the text, they engage in a dialogic transaction with each other. Taking a sociolinguistic perspective and concentrating on the interaction between texts and readers, rather than context, Bloome and Greene (1984) define this more specifically to suggest that reading can be seen to support social relations between people as they jointly make meaning. The event then includes both interpersonal and intrapersonal processes within the sociocultural context.
