Read p.19-24 of Grammar to Get Things Done.
Then respond to this prompt: The authors are almost saying that we stereotype people based on their grammar and their use of non-standard English. Do you agree? How does that make you feel? How does power work here?

Yes i do believe that sometimes we stereotype people based on there writing because of there style of writing. Everyone’s Writing is different and it may or may not be equivalent to yours. This makes me feel uncomfortable because you may think you’re writing is accurate and up to the standard ability but someone else may believe the contrary. Power works here because you have the ability to state what you think even with someone else not agreeing. You have the power to express that through out you’re writing.
