Sir, the term “literacy” means something different in each discipline taught in schools. Scientific literacy does not just mean “being able to read, write, and communicate”; it means “being able to read, write, and communicate–like a scientist”. Sarah took a big step by posting this comment. The attention she has paid to what you wrote is evidence that she is in the process of constructing meaning about the subject matter. As her scientific literacy improves, her learning improves—the two feed off of one another.
I must ask, if you meant something different (it’s not coming from thin air), then why did you write it the way you did? In my opinion, you owe her more than a flippant reply.
Cool dog by the way.
Respectfully (and proud as hell of my student), Geoff
