EDUC 5150 Literacy Instruction in a Digital Age
How has the digital age changed the ways in which people learn to read and write? Today, more than ever, literacy requires skill and fluency in "consuming" and "producing" texts and the ability to recognize and exploit the dynamic interplay between these processes in order to demonstrate one's comprehension. This course will explore the ways in which reading and writing traditionally have been taught and incorporated into content area classes and consider what research demonstrates about technology's role in these efforts.
Prerequisite(s): Admission to the M.Ed program.
