Recalling Reading MemoriesEach of us has memories of how we learned to read and when and how we began reading to learn. Use the questions to guide your responses. What is your earliest recollection of learning to read? What was positive about the experience? Negative? What is your earliest recollection of reading to learn? What was positive about the experience? Negative? How do such reflections contribute to your self-knowledge of literacy? Develop an original response, and comment on the posts of at least two classmates. APA citations are required only with the original response. Make one original post, which must include a citation from at least one source. Respond to a minimum of two classmates to move the discussion forward. Scholars are not required to provide a cited source in the responses to peers. APA citations are only required for the original post. Some discussions are open-ended and do not require APA citations Peer Response 1 (Hope) As I mentioned in my Getting to Know You response, my earliest recollection of learning to read was at home with my dad using the Hooked on Phonics program. I remember we had letter and sound cards on rings that we reviewed and after I learned how to read, there were passage cards with comprehension questions. Another memory I have is in first grade when my teacher read Junie B. Jones and it motivated me to read my first chapter book because I loved the content so much. My memories of reading to learn came much later. In elementary school, it felt more like reading for entertainment. Sixth grade, when we had to start reading our Social Studies book, is probably the first vivid memory that I have of reading to learn. Im not sure if its because the content in K-5 was heavy on fiction, or if the teachers just assisted more with reading the nonfiction content, but I have few memories. However, I vividly remember sixth grade because it was challenging for me. Social Studies was not my strong subject. I had very little background knowledge, so I really had to focus on reading the content to learn it. I would say that it was more of a neutral experience, not really positive or negative. Reflecting back on these questions really made me wonder if I truly had ownership of my learning in elementary school. Who was doing the heavy lifting? It made me realize how important it is to plan lessons that are teacher facilitated and more student led. As Marveil et al. (2013) mentioned, Student-led teaching and learning is an innovative form of active leaning that empowers students with direct ownership of the learning experience (p. 547).
