EDX3270 Literacies Education

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Education
School or Department : Education


This course focuses on the integration of literacies learning into the planning and implementation of learning opportunities for students in early childhood, primary and the middle years of schooling. Drawing on a range of pedagogies, including multiliteracies pedagogy and Designs for Learning, this course will enable pre-service teachers to design and plan integrated and inclusive learning opportunities and authentic assessment to ensure that the learning of literacies is embedded into learning across the curriculum. Specific attention will be paid to the planning of focused learning/teaching episodes about the language forms and features and textual structures of written, visual and multimodal texts. The course will also focus on how to cater for diverse learners and the development of flexible repertoires of learning/teaching strategies for teaching reading and writing across a range of educational contexts.
