One idea that really stuck out to me in Chapter One was that we use multiple types of writing in everyday life. I never really thought of it that way. Taking notes, writing letters, typing a paper, texting, these are all types of ways that we use writing everyday. I also learned that literacy events can happen in multiple places: home, work, school. Depending on where we are, shows what type of writing we will or can use. As long as we are able to write, we will use some type or multiple types of writing each and everyday.
