Hi Blog world,
Well, it’s that time of year again; I am now back in school for the spring term. I am taking Environmental Reporting, Media Convergence, The Constitution & Press and General Methods Teaching K-12. I like all my classes, but I think that my battle this term will be Environmental Reporting. I think this because of my learning disability, Dyslexia, and with me still learning the Associated Press (AP) style that will be a challenge. With that being said, I can learn the AP style, it’s just going to take extra studying and practice on my part.
During my first week of class, I also take time to introduce myself to my teachers and make sure they have received my accommodation sheet. I also encourage my teachers to ask any questions they have about my accommodations. So far I think this will be a great term for me. During this term, I am going to be reading a lot of textbook material. It takes me a very long time to read because of my low vision and my learning disability.
I had a lot of fun this week too; I went to 8:28, a college worship service, and Church with my friend Becca. One of the things I learned during the Bible study time is that I need to take time out to relax and pray each day.
P.S. Here is a link to my archive blog post about Dyslexia: https://amandagene.wordpress.com/2011/03/14/dyslexia/
