    Background:
    <
    We have been reading and discussing Everyone’s an Author over the past few weeks. In our class discussions, we have explored the concept of education, specifically literacy, and how it has impacted the individual. We have also discussed academic writing and the steps associated with developing a well written academic essay. Now, I want to know how educational literacy has affected your development by writing a well-developed academic essay using personal examples.

    Write a literacy narrative in which you tell the story of one or two of your favorite moments related to reading or writing. You may also choose to focus on a specific teacher or class that helped you through literacy difficulties and disinterests. Connect these individual moments to a larger discussion of what they taught you about the role of literacy in your life.
