EDUC 7472 Theory and Pedagogy in the Language Arts Classroom (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

Collaboratively developed and taught course that explores major theories of literary criticism and investigates how classroom teachers can develop curriculum and instruction that apply these forms to analysis and discussion of text in the classroom. Students will read, discuss, and analyze six major works and examine ways of teaching and viewing texts through several critical theory lenses. Pedagogy also emphasizes culturally relevant strategies for helping mainstream, special needs, and linguistically different learners access understanding about theory and content.
