According to reader response theory, a teacher's role is not to teach a particular interpretation or response, but to scaffold the students' reader responses. This study investigates that role. For the analysis, I observed lessons (19 hours of data) of junior high school third-grade students. Based on grounded theory, the results revealed that teachers who scaffold students' reader responses typically play five roles. Furthermore, I found a relationship between the students' task and the specific role adopted by the teacher. However, when engaged in conversation with students, teachers dynamically alternate among the five roles.
