Literacy Autobiography

 

I view literacy as being able to purposefully understand and communicate

 

something to someone else. A literate person is able to read and write, understand what

 

they are reading and writing, and is able to clearly communicate to others those same

 

ideas through reading and writing. There are several experiences from my life that has

 

shaped my definition and beliefs of literacy. My family and background has had the most

 

influence on my literacy beliefs. In this essay I will explain how they have affected me

 

and my definition of literacy today.

 

My family has always been considered a reading family. Instead of watching TV

 

together, we read together. Our library we have at home is vast and full of books of all

 

sorts of genres. I remember both of my parents always encouraging me to read when I

 

was younger. When I come home for the Holiday?s and see how much my younger

 

brothers are improving in their readings I know that the same encouragement for literacy

 

is being applied to them as well.

 

One of my earliest memories of reading is with my family during our nightly

 

family scripture study. We would gather together in our living room every night, well

 

mostly every night, sports sometimes got in the way in a family of 5, and would read a

 

chapter of the Book of Mormon together. I remember getting so excited for my turn to

 

read and once I could read I would race through it as fast as I could. I?m not sure why I

 

wanted to read so quickly, but I one time I was reading through the words so hurriedly Potter 2

 

that when I was done and my mom asked what I had learned I couldn?t remember a single

 

thing. I was so embarrassed, if I could read then why couldn?t I remember anything I had

 

just read out loud. This definitely shaped a big part of my literacy definition, being able

 

to understand what I am reading and/or writing. Even if one can read, if they are reading

 

to fast to understand what they are reading, like I was, then they are not considered

 

literate.

 

Another early memory I have with my family, specifically my mother, is a poetry

 

contest I entered when I was 8 years old. For Mothers Day our teacher had us write

 

poems that we could give to our mothers. My teacher had liked mine so much that she

 

suggested that I enter it in to the ?Why My Mother Deserves a Diamond Contest?. A

 

couple weeks later she received a letter stating I had won my mom a beautiful stone

 

necklace. It wasn?t a diamond, but I was still so excited to give my poem and the

 

necklace to my mom. I took the letter home and remember how proud she was of me. We

 

went that weekend to the jewelry store so she could pick out her necklace and finally read

 

the poem I worked so hard on. I was expecting my mom to be more excited about the

 

necklace, but when we arrived to the store and she read my poem she cried she was so

 

happy. I think she would have been perfectly fine without winning a necklace, she just

 

loved what I had written and the way I communicated to her so much more than a piece

 

of jewelry. This event shaped my definition of literacy, being literate is being able to

 

communicate ideas to others. With my poem I was able to communicate to my mom how

 

much I cared about and loved her, which in the end was more moving than a beautiful

 

expensive necklace. Potter 3

 

Another part of my family life that has affected my literacy is my home library.

 

Growing up my parents always stressed reading and one of the biggest ways they did that

 

was always having an at home library. The library in my current house takes up a full

 

bedroom, with thousands of books lining the shelves. Although some of the books are off

 

limits to the younger kids because of expensive they were, my dad always loved buying

 

the collectors set, we always had a variety of books to choose from. From the young

 

children?s books like Cat in the Hat, Bob Books, and Where the Wild Things Are to adult

 

books like Lord of the Rings, we had it all. My favorites when I was younger were the

 

Magic Tree House Books. After school I could always be found in our library on our

 

giant beanbag engrossed in another story. The way my parents made books so accessible

 

to my family to where we didn?t even have to leave our house to go to a library helped

 

and strengthened my literacy. Since I was constantly able to read and enjoy reading, the

 

environment was so peaceful and comfortable, I was able to practice and grow everyday.

 

One final part of my life that has helped my literacy and my definition of literacy

 

is my parent?s love for reading. They love reading so much that they have always

 

considered great presents books. Instead of getting the brand new Xbox games for

 

Christmas, like most of my friends, we would get books and be just as excited about it.

 

Their love for reading transferred to us and we soon fell in love with it too. Now for

 

Christmas and birthdays I find myself asking for the newest books. I can fully thank my

 

parents for my love for books and I am forever grateful for my love for literacy. When I

 

have my own family I will make it of the upmost importance to add our own library to

 

our house and teach my children my love for books and reading.
