So I realize that I’m guilty. I didn’t really do a Literacy Narrative in my UNIT 1. I think/hope that I can take forward those skills that I fostered with my UNIT 1.
Intuition. Recognizing how we are all hardwired with language — and how to re-wire ourselves, create different pathways. Self actualization: its benefits, and a little bit of How to Do It — how writing can be a tool for it. How scary and powerful writing is. It’s not safe. It’s also totally accessible.
In addition to the feedback I got from the classes, this is what I, personally, am telling you I felt we got.
Nobody really taught me how to access my own intuition in an English Class environment. I learned that in the arts and in the performing arts.
I also have long done a “literacy narrative” lecture of my own. Only, I didn’t know that’s what it was called. And I’ve done it late in the semester, not early. I will try to cycle all this around, like some sort of charcoal in a fish tank.
Thanks for reading. I’ve found all your writing so inspiring on Literacy Narrative. Now, I (the teacher) know what it is.That’s a start for next time.
P.S. We talked a lot about Process. Still, it’s not the same.
UNIT 2, here I come.
