EDCE 7800C Critical Examination of Current Original Research in Literacy

Designed to help candidates explore the current research in literacy learning and teaching, this course combines theory and practice in an effort to integrate what we do in the classroom with what we understand about research, literacy, teaching, and learning. Candidates explore major literacy theorists, a range of theoretical frameworks, and a variety of research contexts and learn to locate, critique, annotate, and synthesize research. In raising and addressing issues and themes relevant to literacy and literacy research, the course emphasizes the range of literacy research, its purposes, rationales, significance, and implications.
