  3. Approach to Understanding Drama: Critical Thinking • Reading, listening, and viewing are a meaning-making process. • Every text, whether it is literary, visual, or auditory, has an objective. • For every reader/listener/viewer, the text’s meaning/message is what occurs in the connection between the work and the individual (different for each person). • An interpretation of a text is only as valid as the evidence that supports it.

  4. Critical Thinking • We get from a piece of work what we bring to it. • The critical thinker will view the text and become alert and aware of the text’s content, style, and meaning, as well as of his/her own attitude, mood, and insight regarding the text. Correct thinking and clear critical thinking demands self-awareness and self-knowledge as well as an openness for the text.
