Assignment #1: Building a Text Set for My Literacy Learning


“I am who I am because of the books I read… We learn about ourselves, and we learn about others, and we learn about the world, all through words.
(Leggo, p. 44)

The texts I have read through my life have greatly influenced my perspectives on literacy as well as who I am as a person, a reader, and a writer. They provided me with the language and tools to tackle my life experiences, and opened my eyes to the experiences of others.

This post is a personal reflection a special set of texts – those that I feel have had the greatest influence on my literacy development.
