Intro to Literacy Narrative
After reading Allegra Goodman’s literacy narrative (p. 7), write a literacy narrative of your own, perhaps recalling how you learned to read or write.
A Literacy Narrative tells a story about something you have learned. The focus of this paper is on the learning. How did you learn? How did your sponsor help you to learn? How does learning this literacy relate to learning other literacies?
Remember that there are many kinds of literacy. The narrative you compose may be about your encounters with paintings, films, music, fashion, architecture, or video games. Or it may explore any intellectual passion you have. From Graphic Design, to Mathematics, to a Foreign Language.
