Write about some key moments or events in your development as a reader:What experiences stand out for you?Were there times when your reading experience or the materials you were reading made you feel like an insider? An outsider?What supported your literacy development? What discouraged it?What frustrations did you encounter? Did you overcome them?What were your reading experiences like? Did you encounter any obstacle, if so what did you do to overcome them?What did you discover about yourself as a reader? What works for you?What goals do you have for yourself as a reader? What do you hope to accomplish this year?What types of things do you like to read? (think outside the box: song lyrics, video game text, online articles, text messages, social network sites, cereal boxes, how-to guides, true stories about real people)Use your journal entries as a rough draft and add from there!
