Abstract: In academic contexts, students’ everyday knowledge and understandings are often undervalued as instruction attempts to supplant these with sanctioned content. However, in reading and interpreting literary texts, personal experience and emotional reactions can both guide and inform reader sense-making of texts. This work looks at how students’ personal insights, emotions, and experience enrich discussions of literary texts and contribute to broader understandings of human nature and the world.
