Due: November 6
Time on Task: Two hours
Revisit Gee and Bain for this assignment.
- Haas uses the language of literacy and of discourse. Gee also uses those terms, adding a more specific concept that he calls Discourse. Put some of Gee’s text alongside Haas’ text on discourse to explore the relationship. Where does Haas’ project fit in relation to Gee’s idea of Discourse?
- For each of Haas’ four explanations for Eliza’s growth as a reader of biology, consider how either Gee or Bain (or even Nathan) might see it. (Use what makes sense to you.) Be sure to provide textual support.
- Find time before next Tuesday to read the middle (empirical) section of Haas’ text. It is a rich resource of examples and evidence that helps shed light on her concepts and conclusions.
