Personal Reading History - Definition and Use

Help students create a Personal Reading History by thinking about and depicting key events in their development as a reader. When students can reflect on and analyze their past reading experiences, it is easier to develop better reading skills in the future.

Note that a reading survey (your reading preferences) and a reading history (your personal history about your literacy development) are two different things. RTC students can complete an online reading survey from computers in the RTC Library and computer labs.
