This semester has allowed me to explore more than authors and genres , or even ways to incorporate books into lesson plans. This semester I have learned a lot about myself as person and a future educator. This database has been a great component in my growth. I have read six award winners,ten books for folk genre, eight books on people with disabilities, five on multiculturalism, nineteen novels, and seven on interdisciplinary connections. Over the semester I began to explore more novels than anything else. As I time went on found myself gravitating more to fantasy books. Fantasy books allowed me to enter into another world, often times entering into the minds of children. Entering into the minds of children allowed me to see the mistakes adults often make with children,it also gave me a better insight on their viewpoints. I did not just focus on fantasy books, I also wanted to expand on the different books I selected. I tried looking up suggested readings and noted authors. "A Winkle in Time" was the first novel I picked because of a reference in another novel. I even went further trying to compare the subject of time travel to another book from an adult's standpoint. I must say I enjoyed the children's novel better. The innocence and intrigue minds of children is something special understand.I also used "Masterpiece" as a guide to selecting more novels. I loved Elise Broach style of writing so much I decided to read "Shakespeare's Secret". I thoroughly enjoyed 'Shakespeare's Secret", because it enlighten me on the history of Shakespeare's works. I also read books to the kids at the daycare I work at. I began to realize the more expression I showed, the more I held their attention. I have come out of my shell as a reader , and explore authors I would not have explored before. I have always believed reading is a key to unlocking who we are inside. Reading is refreshing and allows you to explore new worlds. Reading makes me question what else I do not know and is available right at my finger tips. This is what I would like to pass on to my students, to encourage them to gain the passion for reading.
