It provides various perspectives on literacy as an integral part of social, cultural, and discursive experiences. Participants closely examine perspectives ranging from critical literacy, new literacies, and traditional social/cultural literacy as a means to highlight the significance of literacy as a socio-cultural and political practice. In the course, students will relate various perspectives to the literacy acquisition environment and literacy instructional practices.
