      By Charlton Simmons in the group ED 656 - Fall 2018

            Pham - Week 1

            By Minh Pham in the group ED 656 - Fall 2018
            I actually never really liked learning through literacy. In fact, I looked for as many opportunities to avoid reading as were presented. I only really read comic books and surprisingly encyclopedia (now Wikipedia). I didn't like to read...

                  By Milani Machicote
                  The biggest takeaway that I received from reading this week’s assigned articles was that there is a multitude of ways to teach literacy within the classroom. For a very long time literacy has been reduced to just reading and writing and I am...
