Personal Reflection On My Literacy Events

Initial Reflection In my draft I was most successful in explaining each of my literacy events and connecting them to my theme. I focused on really explaining each event to make sure I was including all of the details but also so that the reader was able to understand how my literacy was formed. In the first paragraph where I discussed how I learned to read, I was going in depth with the details on how it shaped me and how it was really significant to my reading. I think I also did really well with connecting it to the Fishman quote that I used. I wasn’t really happy with my introduction or my final paragraph because I think they aren’t as specific as I would like them to be.

I would go back and add in how I first found creative writing and how it came from my love for reading fantasy novels. I could discuss why I love writing and how the reading and writing that I do now and how that has impacted my literacy. I would also go into detail on the types of writing I do and why I enjoy it as much as I do reading. I think if I were to elaborate more on my creative writing as its own literacy event, it would strengthen what my claim is
