EDU433 Integrating Social Studies and Literacy

Focuses on integrating reading, writing, and speaking as literacy practices and public actions, in the interest of strengthening learners’ understandings of their social circumstances and civic roles. Seeks to both clarify and broaden teaching candidates’ definitions of literacy, drawing from school-based documents, like standards, as well as modes of critical literacy found in communities beyond the school setting. Develops participants’ capacities to use multi-genre texts to engage adolescents in examining and addressing dilemmas related to identity development, social exclusion and inclusion, and power and justice, as they manifest in powerful fictional and non-fictional texts and the world beyond them. (Meets content-pedagogy requirement for professional teaching certification).
