    Courtney's Bio:
    I'm an Elementary Education major at CSS. I also plan to minor in Spanish. Having done PSEO, I came to CSS with more than 60 credits. I'm part of Volunteers Involved Through Action (VITA), Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), and other clubs! Dance has been part of my life for 10 years, and now I'm trying to fit it into my schedule again. I love spending time watching Supernatural and Once Upon a Time, and reading Harry Potter and other great books. I live in a suite with 3 other girls, and we are always finding something fun to do around campus!

What if You Couldn’t Read?

Obviously if you couldn’t read, you probably wouldn’t know what message I just communicated in my writing. This was a topic discussed in my graduate courses this week. The courses have been focusing on why reading is important, how we personally use strategies in our reading, etc. I had to watch a video which – through written words – challenged us to not read anything for a day. It brought up several things wouldn’t be able to read: stop signs, prescription bottles, instructions, emergency signs, etc. My classmates and I also had to discuss how we read in our own academic lives. We were asked what strategies we used to make ourselves comprehend our reading. Many of us talked about highlighting or annotating our reading. I also suggested watching videos that take break down a topic for visual learners. I’m excited for what’s next! I feel like I’m actually learning stuff already.
