Literacy. A word that didn’t really have any meaning to me at the beginning of the semester, but now I have spent 3 months reading, discussing, and writing about this word. So, now I write this final blog post and I ask myself, “What have I learned?” I think that what I have learned the most about literacy is that… Read more →

Final Reflections…

…’cause it’s a dude looking at a mirror.  IT’S FUNNY.  Moving on… English 332 ended up being less of a giant wake-up for me than it was a solid reinforcement of some ideas I’ve had as far as how to undergo teaching… I guess a common term used to define this transition in the gaming industry would be “evolutionary” vice… Read more →

Thank you, Jedi Master

     In all honesty I walked into this class feeling completely burnt out even though we had just come back from summer break. English had been something I had loved my entire life. The only thing I was even sort of good at without having to study my booty off for. I grew up with books endlessly being handed… Read more →

So much information, so little time

So we’ve arrived at the end… This class was completely surprising.  It didn’t talk about literacy in the way I expected.  It didn’t focus on literacy as specifically learning to read and write and when it did, it expanded our preexisting ideas of what these texts about which the public so desperately needs to learn to read and write were exactly. … Read more →

See You Space Cowboy

Truth be told, for the past three semesters I’ve always had a class in room 442. The first time I entered that room it was for a rhetoric class. I didn’t do too well. The concepts confused me, I didn’t know how to apply them in or outside of class, the use of screens in the room intimidated me and… Read more →

It has no end

Almost everyone in class knows my claim of the first thing I learn but I feel it will be a story I tell when asked about this class, so let’s start this blog off with that C- story once again. The first day in class we were told to do was to write down what we considered literacy and I… Read more →

The End!

I cannot believe that the first semester of my sophomore year is already over. People really weren’t joking when they said that high school goes by fast, but college flies by. This semester I was really lucky to have such great teachers. It was my first semester that I took major courses, as I just declared English Education. I have… Read more →

And Here Is The End

“End? No, the journey doesn’t end here.” And the journey never ends for us. There are always new paths to take, new people that we include on our journey, and new ideas that change our resolve. I must say that this past semester has rocked every notion of education I have had before to its very core. For the first… Read more →

The End is Near!! A Reflection…

First off let me start by saying that this semester has been a blast.  I think that I have gotten more out of this class than any other here at csuc. Okay, now on to the actual reflection of what I have learned over the semester. There are different ways that people are literate. A person can be facebook literate… Read more →

WHY DON’T MY GIFS WORK?!

Listen Linda, Let me just say, this has been a tremendously informative class. I have learned things I didn’t know were out there to learn (if that makes sense). One of the things that struck me as the greatest shift in mindset I made throughout this semester was the idea that people aren’t becoming more illiterate. We have simply developed… Read more →
