My history with literacy goes a little something like this … growing up I didn’t have the best education to start off and this had a huge impact on me. I believe a reader and writer is truly shaped by their adolescent learnings and this was an area I really feel like I lacked, Although I never felt very good at reading or writing there were a select few novels and topics that I really enjoyed writing about. I always dreaded English class, not because I don’t like it or because I wasn’t interested in the book we were reading for class at that time.

Correspondingly, in “Heroes, Rebels, and Victims: Student Identities in Literacy Narratives,” by Bronwyn Williams, who also is a professor of English, she conveys the idea that through literacy narratives, the writer can develop a sense of identity through their work. Through the comparison of Corkery and Williams’ articles about literacy narratives, and through my own literacy narrative writing experience, I do agree with these two authors’ assertions that writing these literacy narratives are
The main objective that I took away from this course was thinking critically of finding the meaning of what literacy truly is. I would admire to learn how to better compose essays and steps that are needed to a research essay I struggle with compositions of essays and word choice. I will use my critical thinking skills in everyday life whether it be in school or work it’s something that is useful to figure out solutions to problems and I will remember to apply my literacy.
