During the last several weeks, students in my writing classes have been working on literacy narratives. I’m impressed by the good writing, the thoughtful reflections, and the introspection I’ve seen so far. Without exception, students seem to recognize the important of literacy–to-their-own-lives.
I found this piece (link above) on a Facebook feed, and I really wish I had written it myself. It’s dead-on, in my opinion. I think it will inform and reinforce what many students are thinking: literacy is an incredibly important and powerful force.
I’m proud of the work students are doing. This one’s for them.
