Topic, “What impact has reading had on your life?”
Write a short literacy narrative about yourself. Literacy narratives can often have slightly different focuses, so you have a small amount of room for creativity, but they primarily deal with detailing a personâ€™s path to reading and writing (education and experiences as a reader) and/or the impact that reading and writing has on their lives. Keep in mind that the focus here is on â€œliteracyâ€ (the act of reading and/or writing) and not as much on â€œliteratureâ€ (which weâ€™ll be talking about in class). Your literacy narrative can involve your experiences with various â€œgreatâ€ books, but it will more likely encompass your experiences with a variety of texts, from internet reading, to newspapers, to comic books, to whatever you tend to read or even write in your spare time.
