Of all the perspectives discussed in class, I believe that my perspective does not fully reflect a specific one - I am a mixture of many. I support the Top-Down Perspective, due to its focus on semantics. Yet I also support the Social Constructivist Perspective, as it focuses on the connections to self, to others, and to the world. The Interactive Perspective is another view that I acknowledge in my own thinking as its processes include synthesizing information from letters, words, sentences, and larger units of meaning. I believe that all perspectives discussed in class have their place in the classroom, however I feel my own perspective to be a reflection of the perspectives I have mentioned above.
