Hours: 
36L

While pedagogical theory has long emphasized the place of language acquisition in literacy, recent educators have begun exploring the role of digital, visual, print, and critical literacies in education. This course introduces students to a multiple literacies framework through the pedagogical lens of social justice and diversity. Class participants learn to integrate the multimodalities of literacy in their teaching practice and expand their understanding of 21st-century literacy. This course requires students' enrolment in the Education and Society Minor or permission of the instructor.
