Gossip Girl vs. Walking Dead vs. Boy Meets World

  • Literacy, Technology, Place, Actions, Writing, Language, Beliefs, Values
  • How do these stereotypes all come into play?
    • Society changes, skills evolve

 

  • Why do people adapt to other discourses?
    • To fit in, feel accepted
    • Helps you survive
    • We need other people, we have multiple roles in our lives
    • People deviate from their discourse in the Walking Dead because there is more of a need for survival
    • Position of authority vs. the new guy

-Speech Acts: verbs that do things

 

Lauren: “When we are younger, we are more acceptive of things, but as we grow and mature, we begin to label things to help us process, accept, reject, organize, and memorize things.”
