EDUC352 Integrated Literacy 1: Selecting, Using & Responding to Texts

Integrated Literacy 1: Selecting, Using & Responding to Texts will provide candidates with the skills to select and teach using quality texts including literary, informative, primary sources and other text types. Strategies to engage learners with text ranging from a read aloud to an authentic literacy lesson will be modeled. How to select texts free of bias and stereotype, authentically representing traditional and contemporary Indigenous cultures will be a focus and candidates will learn ‘how to tell the difference’ through positive and negative examples. Strategies will be demonstrated for teaching with literature ranging from picture books to chapter books to a young adult novel. Genres will be explored, examining fiction and non-fiction, and the special status of traditional stories in a cultural context. Candidates will experience different ways learners interact with text in their journey to become literate adults.
