A reader response criticism is a written piece that explores how a body of work affected the experience of the reader. The purpose of writing a reader rsponse is to scrutinize or justify your personal reaction to what you have read. This form of work is often a subjective piece of writing that should in fact be taken personally. Do not state what you think the reader wants to hear, instead focus on how the work that you read made you feel on many different levels. The best way to approach this type of work is to think of it as a full-on editorial of your opinions of the piece. Use direct quotes from the piece to exemplify how you are drawn towards or away from what it explores. This selection of worksheets helps students find their inner voice towards an author's work.
