Through the Detroit Reads program, I learned how to break down words I didn’t understand. Reading is still a little difficult when I would run into words that I haven’t used in years, but I have learned a lot of new words by reading new materials and I am reading a lot better. I like to read books with subjects I can understand. I have also learned to write a lot better on paper. Assistance from my tutor and using the computer in the lab helps me a lot.
