I love the discussion about window and mirror texts, though I think it is important to see the importance of window texts, even if our students can't relate to everything happenning in it, they can still identify with different portions of the text, which is the whole point of a window text.

Reading and understanding what you are reading is very important. Most of the time students read what is in front of them but not relating to what is being read. To read something that is window text is hard due to lack of interest or just not able to relate to the text. Like the lady stated that some words can hinder the process of understanding.
