URBS 373 - Adolescent Literacy

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
(Same as EDUC 373 ) This course combines research, theory and practice in the context of an urban middle school. Concurrently with tutoring a student, we engage in case study research about the literacy’s our students accept and resist in the various disciplines. We define literacy broadly and look at how school literacy compares and contrasts to the literacy’s valued and in use in contexts outside of school. We explore how literacy learning is constructed through methods and curriculum with a special emphasis on the diversities at play in middle and high school classrooms. Conceptual understandings of knowledge, strategies that support attaining that knowledge and the role of motivation in learning are emphasized. Ms. McCloskey.

One 2-hour period; one hour of laboratory.
