Gees view on literacy

Post  DanielTay on Fri Mar 15, 2013 12:26 pm

Gee describes literacy as a sociallly acceptable use of language in the place that you are. Gee says that discourse has to be acquired and that it cant be learned. Also that discourse can change depending on the group of people you are around. He thinks of discourse as and "identitiy kit" that tells you exactly what to do.

I dont think it changed my understanding of literacy, it just made me think of it another way. Ive never really thought about it because its such a simple concept.
