Growing up the only literacy I thought there was the basic one, which included reading and writing. I loved to read but I struggled with writing, I have never been a strong writer so I never thought I was fully literate. I now know that there are more literacies then the basic one, without them I can never be fully literate. Being in university I know I have physical literacy, financial literacy, and social literacy. I incorporate them into my everyday life so being a teacher I can naturally promote them into my lessons.
With the literacies that I struggle with I am worried about not being to help my students become literate in them. As a teacher I can’t let my fears and/or struggles create barriers for my students.
