Literacy is so often about power relationships. There's so much of it going on in Hunter. I find the book to be very descriptive and interesting. I visualize the structure of the hotel because I travel so much, and my daughter works for an international hotel chain, so we've discussed this a little bit. I hadn't really thought about power relationships in literacy, but all the readings make me think about literacy relationships in office environments. I found it a little frustrating reading about Mark's efforts to improve the literacy of housekeeping and not being able to just tell him, "You're looking at this wrong" myself. Does anyone else find themselves wanting to respond to the staff in the chapter and trying to help, or is it just me?
