      1. The essay I selected is Ethnography of Community. The reason is to focus on how literacy does assist in a chosen community.
      2. I have completed all the required steps and currently working on my essay outline. Revising and correcting based on the feedback.
      3.  I am doing good with the research essay project at the moment and would seek help when I do struggle with anything.

      1. I chose essay option 5. I thought it would be interesting to give a literacy test to 5 different people. I selected different gender and backgrounds as well as race and age groups. I also wanted to see their reactions to the test and how they felt during and after taking it.  I am pretty much almost done with my research. I have given all the tests, I am just finishing up gathering their responses on how they felt about taking the test. I think at this point I am ok and will reach out if I need any more assistance.

      I chose option 3 for my essay. I came across an interesting fact that California has the lowest literacy rate in the country, and being from California myself I wanted to look into the reasons behind this.

      2. I’m in the research phase of my essay and I plan to begin writing up a draft once I gather all the materials. I look forward to giving some feedback on the peer reviews. I’m coming across a lot of interesting information on my own topic of research and I’m open for any feedback as well. Thank You
