READ 6601 - Adolescent Literacy and Learning Today


(3 sem. cr.) Adolescents today construct their identity by creating and engaging with multiple texts and media for a variety of purposes. Education professionals in this course explore how literacy inside and outside of school can be used to support adolescent learning and prepare students in grades 6–12 for college and career. By considering the research behind literacy policies and practices, education professionals evaluate the role of literacy in content-area classrooms including assessment opportunities and disciplinary approaches. Through coursework, education professionals have an opportunity to examine what it means to be literate and why literacy is important in all disciplines, including English language arts, mathematics, science, and literature.
