Literacy

Literacy is usually defined as being able to read and write. I think there are different levels of literacy. A first grader that is just learning how to read short stories has a lower literacy level then say a college student. The first grader may be able to read short stories or books only because their brains may not be able to comprehend too much information at on time. If they are just learning how to read, they are mostly concentrating on getting the words right and sounding them out first. Then they concentrate on what they read meant. College students have a higher literacy level. They no long have to concentrate on what the words mean and saying them right. They worry more about what the meaning of what they are reading.

About Me

My name is Katie. I'm from Hagerstown, IN. Don't know where that is? It's ok most people don't. It's a little "hick" town about 20 min away from Richmond. I'm your average girl. I love playing sports. In high school I was a trainer for our football team, I was on the swim team, I did track and field and I played softball. I was also in band. I play the tenor and bari sax, clarinet and bass clarinet. I listen to every kind of music from country to rock, to rap. I'm a freshman here at BSU. I have quite a few friends from my high school that are also attending BSU. I'm making new friends everyday. I'm having a lot of fun so far and I know there's only more fun to come!
