Katrina, I’m not an educator so I can’t really speak to whether or not it’s a matter of advanced literacy per se, but I can say that actively engaging with and thoughtfully examining the text—as opposed to passively accepting what is presented as factual—is a skill anyone can develop. Thanks for reading the articles and weighing in.
