Pratt shows one of her son’s assignments where he answered the teachers questions in the same sequence that they were asked, resulting in little to no freedom to students. Could relate to this because assignments my teachers have given to me are very similar. As school progressed and classes started getting harder, the classroom setting shifted from a “contact zone” to a “community. ” This allows students like me to have more freedom and creativity in there assignments. Throughout the text I would define “culture’ as any group of people. Before rereading the story was able to apply culture to most parts of y life.
After rereading the story with a different perspective of culture, I make it out as a more global term. Rather than thinking of individual’s lives, thought more about civilizations. Found that along with the change of perspective comes a whole new output of the text. This is why it is important to reread the text because without doing so would be challenging to find the meanings of all the words clues If we changed any of the meanings or views of them, it dramatically changes the points the story is trying to get across and the way the story flows.
