Let's examine how two very different readers' experiences influenced their perceptions of reading and themselves as readers....
"Help Me"
In the present, we draw from our rich repertoire of language and experience to make sense of new situations and to build new knowledge (Dewey, 1949; Edge, 2011; Rosenblatt, 1978, 1994, 2005; Vygotsky, 1978). In other words, our past helps shape our present and frame our anticipations for the future.

1. Read the reading autobiographies
for the course members in your
"Home Group" for discussions
(Of course you may read more! ...)

2. Respond to what you read. For
example, are there any memories
or experiences you identify with?
Any questions you have? What
does the writing lead you to think
about/ wonder/ ponder..?
Now, think about your own experiences as a reader. Which memories, associations, feelings, people, books, and processes come to mind?

first memories?
memorable books?

Life is filled with many journeys...
Before we begin our shared
journey through this course, let's take a few minutes to think about, to write about, and to share our individual journey as a reader--our reading autobiography.
Examining our lived
experiences as readers will help us to
share "how we got here," to build some course community, and to consider some of the assumptions and expectations about reading that we have collected along our
journey to the present.
What is the story of your journey as a reader--your reading autobiography?

Take a few minutes (15-30) to write your story as a reader--your reading autobiography.

There is no wrong way to write it (It doesn't need to be a poem--although it could be if you'd like!)
You could begin with your earliest memories and free write about your journey...
You could begin with what "jumps out" from your past and focus on the images, memories, feelings, or associations that have influenced your journey the most...
The purpose of this (informal) writing is to remember/reflect and to share your story as a reader.
