3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission to graduate study in education.
Candidates will develop a foundational understanding of the multiple, often competing, conceptions of literacy that can foster or impede learning in adolescent classrooms at the middle grades and secondary levels. Literacy practices in homes, schools and the larger communities will be observed and interpreted with an emphasis on their implications for effective teaching. The ways that an individual student’s literacy practices may be shaped by gender, social class and ethnicity will be considered, including, in particular, issues associated with ESL learners.
