Explain Gee’s distinction between Discourse with a capital D and discourse with a lowercase
See the attached file in order to answer the questions below and Please answer 150 words for each question. Thank you!
Question 1: What does Gee mean when he says that you can speak with perfect grammar and yet be “wrong nonetheless” (para. 2)? Does this conflict with what you’ve been taught in school about grammar?
Question 2: Explain Gee’s distinction between Discourse with a capital D and discourse with a lowercase d. Does it make sense to you? Why or why not?
Question 3: Gee argues that reading and writing never happen, and thus can’t be taught, apart from some Discourse. Further, he argues that teaching someone to read or write also means teaching them to “say, do, value, believe” as members of that Discourse do (para 24). How is this connected to his claims about the relationship between Discourse and identity?
