Description
This course critically examines issues related to conceptions of literacy, emergent literacy, comprehension and metacognitive processing, motivation, home and school influences, and curricular, instructional, and assessment practices that facilitate literacy learning for all students at all grade levels. As a graduate class that lays the foundation for subsequent courses in literacy education, we will critically analyze the current debates, research, and theories in literacy education from a variety of perspectives.
