Gee's What is Literacy

Post  Demetrius.Ste on Tue Mar 12, 2013 4:56 pm

Basically he took the word literacy and broke it down. He used the word discourse to help him define it, which meant a socially accepted association among ways of using language, of thinking, and of acting that can be used to identify oneself as a member of a socially meaningful group or a social network. He was saying that literacy can be used and learned in many ways. Depending on your social class, the way you learn it depends.

I wouldn't say it changed my understanding of literacy, just expanded my mind about the word it self even more. At first I just thought that we all learned literacy the exact same way, since its just a basic thing.
