Revisit your claims/ideas from your draft AND your unthinkable thought response. As you re-read the section of Gee, what aspects of his text reinforce some of those ideas?

Filtering, for Gee, is “a key device in the creation of a group of elites who appear to demonstrate quick and effortless mastery of dominant secondary Discourses” (15).

We learn what to do when we are put in these different type of situations. Gee says we can not learn Discourses. We need to be put in social settings of these backgrounds to experience…
