Literacy Battle Royale
So who wins in the great clash of literary concepts between the "3rd space" and "affinity spaces"? While I think each concept brings valuable ideas to the table, I would have to give the nod to Gee and his affinity spaces. Affinity spaces seem to promote a better arena for learning in general, but one would be hard pressed to institute such a practice in the classroom. On the other hand, the 3rd space is more likely to succeed in the classroom. Any takers?
