I was tired of being label a slow reader. I was advanced in my math classes and hardworking student; because of this I knew there wasn’t anything wrong with me. I figured that if I can learn this complicated rules in math than I can learn how read better. With the help of my parents and other teachers I was able to figure out that I was exposed to three different ways of reading. Form that moment I told myself that I should practice the English literacy, since all the text books are written in English.
Personal Literacy Narrative Reading and writing is a tool everybody needs in their lifetime the basic reading and writing skills are used on a daily base no matter what field you plan to study. Reading and writing are taught at a young age. I personally was taught by preschool I noticed on how I grew with my writing and how I became a better reader and writer throughout my life I personal love reading and writing it’s a way for everyone to express themselves through their choice of words. Everybody learns how to read and write differently some students tend to be stronger than others, personally speaking I feel I tend to be higher in reading then writing. I learned how to read and write at my elementary school named Saint La Salle.
Academically, I was pushed into performing the best I could such as trying my best in English class even though it was a struggle in the beginning. Socially, I was pushed into situations that I had to adapt to, such as changing schools every couple years. I was also pushed physically into trying everything I could possibly be comfortable with to see what I enjoy doing. These challenges helped form who I am and pushed me to
To me, it seemed like an art to write in that flowing script. Many times my hands to ache at practicing to write the cursive letters and sentences and also I would have trouble writing some letters such as the “b”, “f”, and “z”. My mother would help me practice those letters by guiding my hand across the page. Eventually, I learned to write in cursive and I was elated. I started using it in school and would write more neatly than I could in normal print.
In the past, I have struggled in understanding what I have to improve on as a Pre-AP English student. Throughout this year, I hope to be able to comprehend myself as a student better to achieve my ultimate goal of success. I anticipate many challenges for the school year ahead of us, one of which includes my writing style. A key point that I deeply want to emphasize on is my efficiency and comprehension as a writer. In most cases, my struggle is when I am put under a timer.
Reading about Frederick Douglass 's struggle to learn to read and write reminded me of some difficulties I faced when I was also trying to learn. All throughout elementary school, I had to take a speech therapy class to help me learn to read. It was very difficult to learn how to read some words because of my speech impediment. However, I worked a little harder each day to sound words out right and before I knew it, I was able to read and write just as good as every other student. In a way, Douglass and I both had some difficulties we had to push through to be able to learn to read and write but if you work hard enough anything is possible.
I believe many students have trouble summarizing a piece of writing because it seems intimidating to summarize a full page into five to seven sentences. I had a lot of trouble summarizing a piece of writing until I learned a few simple steps from my English 095 teacher. It would be amazing to help students learn how to write good summaries and watch their writing improve throughout the year. My favorite thing we did in class is when we were writing narrative essays. I loved learning how to write a narrative and procedural essay.
English Language Development was the class I was enrolled in throughout elementary since I was a Spanish native speaker and lacked English language skills. Nevertheless, when it came to fifth grade I found something in me that pushed me to read books and speak as much English as possible. As a result, by the end of fifth grade I was at the top of my ELD class, even ready to become promoted and move into normal English with the rest of my peers, yet this was not enough for me. I was not going to accept normal English classes so I persevered and pushed my English language skills further and eventually found myself taking the highest English classes while also being among the top students, not forgetting that I was fluent in two
It is also very important that you start putting all this work since middle school so you are prepared. One of my internal success goals would be to be to become better in Language Arts and Geometry. Because they are core classes they are very important for me to have good grades on and do my best. Because I missed a whole quarter it is very hard to be up to everything and understand deeply all the lesson and chapters. I would also like to become better at Language Arts also because I am not very good at writing and I feel like it’s one important skill to have for the future, because that is a way to communicate and write all your feelings and thoughts.
For my smart goal walking and strengthens my body I have tried to achieve it for the last many week. for me, for the first weeks I was active and I organize my schedule to help me to work on it, but after eight weeks my schedule start to change and there are many things goes wrong like I didn’t have time because of midterm exams, and the schedule of my classes changed, in my opinion this things disappoint me to achieve my goal and I feel stressed. I learnt from this thing, it needs patience and the right amount of dedication to get best result and achieve the goal. from my personal experience of behavior, before starting thinking about achieving my goal I didn’t have patience and maybe I would do anything to give me quick results in any goal I wont to achieve it, but now my behavior changed and this would help in my future to understand my patients better and help them to achieve their goals by steps and patience.

I believe a strength I’ve discovered is the ability to efficiently read history books and comprehend them. At the midterm reflection, this was the area I felt I could improve on and I believe I have turned this into a strength. At first it was hard for me to pay attention to what I was reading in history books because at times they were boring; I would have to reread every section to understand what I had just read. Now that I have done several assignments, I feel that I have mastered this weakness. The moment I knew I had strengthened my ability to comprehend the history book was the final assignment.
Literacy development for me has been a very tough and hard thing to grasp. There are many people that have helped my literacy development. My mom was a very big help, but I have to say that my teachers at North Royalton City Schools went above and beyond to help me. Although, the most influential teacher was Mr. Paul Salyards who taught English at North Royalton High School. Literacy is the most important thing you can achieve in your life, but for some of us it will continue to be a lifelong struggle.

Teachers and my parents doing everything they could to make reading and writing and overall learning easier for me; however, all this extra help I did not like. Help consisted of eye therapy, doing extra outside of school, and special help in
It was a little slow, but eventually I learned enough to be able to get through college.” James says it was extremely difficult to learn an entirely new language and culture as late in life as he was. He had to put a large amount of effort into it, but now he is able to use English in his everyday life, and when he is presented with something new, he knows exactly how to work hard to get through
In addition, I am a very hard working individual in school and participate in many educational programs to help better myself for the future. However, that never seems enough and I feel like my test scores hold me back from many opportunities. In addition, I try not to let my scores hold me back so I become involved in many educational programs such as, the National Young Leaders Conference and the National Youth Leadership Forum: Advanced Medical Studies. These programs, along with my coursework, allow me to showcase my abilities to strive in higher level thinking classes even though my scores do not fully represent my success. I would like to leave behind the message that even though I scored a 20 on the ACT and a 1480 combined on my SAT, I can still be successful in a class filled with individuals who scored significantly higher than
