4.1.1 What I like
Texts: two texts of own choosing
One of the most important things you learn in English is how to refine your personal response to texts. A personal response is far from reacting impulsively to a text or reading anything into it that you want to. None of us has that degree of freedom. Our response needs to be grounded in the text and suppor ted by evidence from that text. So while there are different readings of a text, the readings usually correspond to those of certain communities of readers.
Review the texts you have encountered in this unit, choose one that works for you and explain your personal response to it. Use the following table to guide you through your personal response.
