A few more group one questions
1. Brandt writes that many people have positive experiences learning to read, but learning to write is often difficult and traumatic. Does this resemble your experiences at all? Why do you think this is the case?
2. Brandt writes that analysts of literacy in schools often oversimplify the problem (169-170). Do you think her argument takes too much focus away from literacy institutions? How are libraries implicated in literacy gaps?
