Reading History . I have always loved to read. Growing up I can remember my mom reading to me the same few picture books repetitively so I’d memorize the letter patterns. I remember the magical feeling when I started recognizing words. At first, I struggled with reading.
In triad K, I have been able to reflect on my literacy journey, create amazing study habits, and learn more about rhetoric. In addition, I have learned how I can use rhetoric in everyday life. Although I know I still have not achieved the complex writing, I strive to get to, I still make use of what I already know and just try to build on it. Writing essays such as these and the others we have done in the class have really helped transform me into a better writer. We talked about literacy sponsors and had to write a literacy narrative, where I reflected my growth in writing, and created goals on how I would like to improve.
Before I read Mysterious Skin, I did look up some reviews about the book. I can admit I was more enticed to get the book and read it. People were saying how the book changed their life, and they continue to read the book over and over again. Yes, the people comments intrigued me but I wanted to find out for my own on how the book will provoke my own emotions. After reading Mysterious Skin, I will forever be attached to this book because of the emotions it was able to pull out of me.
These trials give us an opportunity to grow and transform our lives. In the same way, as Faber said, we need texture when we read a book. We need to feel the paper within our hands, the scent a book holds, and skim our fingers over the words. We need texture in our lives, just like we need it in a book.

On the dedication page it says “With love we dedicate this book to all the teenagers who have become our friends and who have taught us through their friendship that we all have something important to offer each other.” I love the dedication page, because to me it’s saying that teenagers actually can do something, and that they can have a say. These books are literally written for us. We actually get to write them.
My writing portfolio is an accurate representation of my writing ability. These pieces reflect my ability to effectively communicate my main idea, read and think critically, do research, and learn independently. I enjoyed writing the creative assignments, which also happened to be what I was best at writing. This is perfect because in the future, I plan to be an author, and am already writing my first book. Being able to write creatively directly affects my ability to write a good book without having to steal ideas from other books, movies, or television series.
I felt less clingy, less irritated and much more self-reliant. Reading kept me busy so I didn’t have time to indulge in self-pity. More importantly, I could interact with the characters from great books and absorb strength, wit and courage from the best authors of all time.

Good writing stems from a strong foundation of reading skills. I remember sitting in the library of Griswold Elementary School listening to the librarian Mrs. Church telling us how if we are good readers we are good writers. As the group of eager little children that we were, writing was something that we loved to do and participated in often, so a chance of becoming better at it just made us want to read more. In this same library, the PTO held the annual Scholastic Book Fair, this event allowed kids to browse a selection of books and develop a understanding of the personal book genre that they enjoy.

After the end of each story, we give the children candy to positively reinforce the idea that reading is an enjoyable part of life. And its great opportunity to give the chance to get into the habit of reading because that is part of our world. I learned a lot from them because reading is a fun way to be intelligent and sometime we can read books we like and we are interested in so we have fun and we get education at the same time. This year I am volunteering at nursing home. I learned a lot from this experience.
