Reading Response for March 18, 2010

 As I was reading the books for Memior Projects, I had a lot of memories of my own rushing throught while reading
When I Was Young In the Mountains. My undergraduate was college in the mountains of WV. That particular book takes place in WV. In fact most of Cynthia Rylant’s books have some kind of connection WV. I remember my instructor talking about that book. It is a wonderful book to use to talk about Applachain Traditions.

 While I was reading the article by Arnburg, there were a couple of things that stood out about teaching this to students. I would really have to do alot of minilessons for Kindergarteners on using the first person. I belief I would modify this project by having the Kinder’s and their families work on this together. Of course I loved here approach of ” writing along side the the students”. It makes so muc sense. I think then a conversation can get started and also an exchange of ideas as well.
