    Exploring the Literacy Practices of High School Debaters My personal literacy development has not always been easy. In grade school I struggled with dyslexia. Additionally my family moved several times and new school districts were teaching reading and writing using different methods. These difficulties have made grade school not nearly as central to my literacy development as most students. My high school career was much more influential in creating my literacy practices. More specifically my e...

  • Their Poor Literacy Skills
    3,444 words
    Whether we are experiencing a 'literacy crisis' depends on ones understanding of the term 'crisis'. It is obvious from our personal experiences that there are problems among groups on a broader scale and on a smaller, local individual scale but I do not believe that it is a 'crisis' but a concern that needs to be addressed. The media reports construct an image of 'this' massive danger to the individual, the State, the national and our standing in global networks because of the illiterate masses'...
  • Students At A High School Literacy Level
    1,218 words
    Literature takes relevance in everyone's lives. The amount of relevance literature takes in one's life is dependent on how much they make it a part of their life. Literacy is a major key in being self-sufficient and succeeding in life. This is why it's very important that children develop strong literacy skills early in life.
