Colaiaco called Douglass a Prometheus of the Afro-Americans, for that his act of learning and becoming literal is an act of enlightening, enlightening himself, and later all the society. It was the reading of books that paved the way to freedom for him. Thus, Colaiaco notes Acquiring literacy was for Douglass a Promethean act of rebellion necessary for the achievement of freedom. Reading gave him access to books, in which he discovered liberating ideas that would sustain him throughout his life as an abolitionist and reformer.

Reading. There was no other word in the world that I hated more. As a child being forced to read in school or at home, my hatred for it only grew stronger. However, all it took was one class to change that. As a young reader and writer, there are many milestones to be crossed in order to evolve within literacy, and for me personally, the most impactful milestone to be obtained was discovering my passion of reading novels, particularly in the time of my later elementary school years.
I think that through hearing the ideas of others and seeing student work and progress, I was able to get more into teaching the lessons to my students and becoming the best teacher I could be. I also learned a lot about myself as a student and as a teacher through the assignments of creating and teaching literacy lessons in a classroom. I struggled initially with the phonemic awareness and phonics lessons because I have no memory of even learning these subjects in school. I was able to meet with the kindergarten teacher at the school I work for and see how she integrates literature into her classroom constantly.

However, I did learn through my years of schooling that being able to read is key to success in any field of employment. I had a personal drive to be able to understand what I am reading, no matter what it may be such as an article in a magazine, a memo from supervisors or policy and procedures of a company. In my spare time, I would read as much as I could to learn new words. Since I come across words every day that are spoken to me that is not understood, I would research the words to better understand what was being discussed. Still to this day, it has become a habit of mine to read any random piece of writing to ensure my understanding continues to grow.
