ECE 9150:Critical Literacy Education for Elementary Teachers

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission to the Ed.S. or Ed.D. program.
Competing theories of literacy view reading, writing, and teh production of texts as the cognitive processes of individuals or as social practices imbued with issues of power, access, diversity, and design. Today’s P-5 educational environment requires teachers to fill their students’ heads with knowledge that will be measured on high-stakes tests, often at the expense of teaching children to think critically and understand how texts function in our society so they may become agenst in charge of writing and rewriting their world. Candidates in this course will learn to analyze critically a range of multimodal texts from a sociolinguistic perspective and teach their students to engage in textual analysis, explore how language is related to power, and create opportunities for students to design and redesign texts so they may take action for greater democracy, equity, and justice.
