    These book at the time seemed to be at the time pretty non-discriminatory and innocent. In hindsight, while they weren’t particular offensive they also didn’t do a very good job of exposing me to a variety of perspectives. The books generally perpetuated societal “norms” for gender roles, and did in no way shape or form expose me to different cultures of lifestyles.

    Third grade, Mr. Shanzer read us the first half of the first harry potter book. This was one of the first times that I actually took an interest in reading, the book took me two years to actually read and finish. But after reading it I went on to read the entire series.

    Comic books were a fun way to enjoy reading. The stories were easy to follow and the characters had a lot of history and background. There is a virtually limitless amount of reading that can be done. Comics Book however had primiarilary straight white heterosexual males in the role of the heroes.

    This is why I came to like math so much, for a lot of math their is a clear answer or at least some sort of goal for what you want to prove. Math is a lot more about the logical dissection of a problem, where reading and writing require a creativity I’ve never been able to master.
