 Teaching Critical Reading through Literature. ERIC Digest., Collins, Norma Decker
Teaching students to think while reading is referred to in the professional literature as "critical reading." It is defined as "learning to evaluate, draw inferences, and arrive at conclusions based on evidence" (Carr, 1988).
When literature is approached from a problem solving perspective, students are asked to evaluate evidence, draw conclusions, make inferences, and develop a line of thinking (Riecken and Miller, 1990).
Wilson (1988) suggests that teachers re-think the way they teach reading and look critically at their own teaching/thinking processes.

 the Vilnius review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
A similar polemic reaction was inspired by XX amžiaus literatūra (Twentieth Century Literature, 1995) by Vytautas Kubilius, when the issue discussed was whether the subjective view of one person was capable of conveying the criteria of values of a whole century, and of revealing the dramatic nature of complex turns in history.
Naujausioji lietuvių literatūra, although written by a group of authors, again made opposing views cross swords, and raised the question whether the history of literature as discussed and analysed by a largish group of authors is not threatened by schematism of evaluation, or whether interpretations of individual works do not lack unexpected and spontaneous discoveries.
The recent history of Lithuanian literature of the period since the National Revival Movement, which is actually still going on, only comes into focus gradually, by placing separate historical events, like pieces of a mosaic, and by recognising literary groups and generations.

Born in 1612 to Thomas Dudley a steward to the Earl of Lincoln and Dorothy Yorke a woman born to noble heritage and considered a gentlewoman, whom was well educated for the time.
The conditions that awaited her within the Colonies were ones that pushed Anne both physically and mentally and it can be argued it is what drove Bradstreet to literature as a way to escape the turmoil and loneliness that persisted.
She was learned in British literature, a well educated woman and with all that said she did not follow the tendencies of British female poets, but went down a different path.
