Literacy Narratives are (non-fiction) story-telling that re-creates and examines significant past experiences in which reading, writing (or perhaps speaking, listening) figure prominently; literacy narratives focus on key stages or events in one's development as a literate (reading, writing, thinking, speaking, listening) person. Many of the readings in Chs. 1 & 2, including King's and Wright's essays, are examples of literacy narratives. A Literacy Narrative is autobiographical, and writing such essays can help you discover and evaluate the role(s) literacy has played in your life, reveal the sources of your present attitudes and abilities, deepen your understanding of how/why you have developed into the kind of reader, writer, thinker, communicator that you have become. A Literacy Narrative prompts you to explore, remember, reflect upon, analyze important moments, experiences, or stages of development in your own personal writing, reading (speaking, listening, thinking) history: e.g., influential events, scenes, people; stages; turning points or moments of insightful realization; failures and/or successes; "border crossings" or passages into new, different kinds of language, reading, writing, communication, thinking. Alternatively--since there are many kinds of "literacies"--Literacy Narratives can also address other kinds of literacies, such as visual literacy, computer literacy, science literacy, film literacy, etc.
