How to Become Batman

Though I am only half way through the podcast at this time, I was provoked by what they were addressing in the second. It isn't exactly the example they are using but the idea of what that example represents. The idea that we are the reason that people are being stifled based on a form of disability. I relate to this, and is something that has intrigued my interest in the field of education, and really is my main motivation to pursue this career. At an early age I was diagnosed with dyslexia, and treated as though I wasn't capable of reading. The reason I draw on this issue, is that I improperly given this burden by the simple fact that I was just a slow reader. I read slow, and it took years for me to realize why it was that I did so. Because of the treatment, being put in reading classes that I excelled in, having people try to help me read exams or work in class, made me feel discouraged and not want to read. It wasn't until 7th grade that I realized I loved reading and began picking up books on my own. As I began reading more frequently, I understood that I was reading slower, but it was with a purpose. I looked at text differently, I looked at it from a critical standpoint. My point of this blog is to explain the crippling effect that people have on others in seeking an absolute answer, and making claims that are not justified.
