In  Bootstraps, Victor Villanueva writes that he shuns linearity, an expected academic convention, to weave together theory, experience, and reflection:

I am presenting my ideograph,”. . .presenting my own ideologically influenced dialectical processes. I hope for some enjoyment for the reader in the byways which always return to the main road. Along the way, the reader will meet one Latinos mind as it is manifest and constituted in language and discourse and rhetoric.

This is an autobiography with political, theoretical, pedagogical considerations. The story includes ethnographic research. The story includes things tried in classrooms. The story includes speculations on the differences between immigrants and minorities, the class system and language, orality and literacy, cultural and critical literacy, Freire, ideology, hegemony, how racism continues and the ways in which racism is allowed to continue despite the professions best efforts. And in its inclusions the story suggests how we areall of ussubject to the systemic. This is the personal made public and the public personalized, not for self-glory nor to point fingers, but to suggest how, maybe, to make the exception the rule. (xviii)


Compose your own “ideograph,” a literacy narrative with political, theoretical, or pedagogical considerations (you do not need to address all three). Include a significant experience you had as a student that related to reading and writing. Include speculation on how race may have shaped this particular experience and how this experience relates to the “systemic.” How have you been advantaged or disadvantaged by “the systemic,” subject to it? Create a composition that is “the personal made public and the public personalized” to suggest whether, because of your race, your experience of education appears to have been the “exception” or the “rule.”

Quoted and paraphrased material from one or more of the assigned readings must be smoothly integrated into the essay and properly attributed.
Correct in-text MLA citations and a correct Works Cited list are required.
