Think back to your Unit 1 project (Education Narrative) and how you view the significant event or mentor in your past, how that event or teacher has affected your educational journey. Read the following passages:
- Literacy Is More than Just Reading & Writing
- Sponsors of Literacy in Contemporary Culture: An E-Interview with Dr. Deborah Brandt
- Critical Analysis
After you read, share what you think “literacy” is and what a “literacy sponsor” is. Write about a moment in your literacy history when a particular sponsor influenced your development as a reader and/or writer in a meaningful way. Analyze the impact this sponsor had on your literacy development. Explain whether this was a positive or negative experience, and if so, why?
