LEARNING LITERACY

EDU1LLI

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject engages pre-service teachers with skills required for academic literacy. This is scaffolded through a diagnostic test where pre-service teachers will establish their own strengths in literacy and areas that require development. The subject explores the components and conventions of English language. In particular, students will examine the developmental stages of oral language acquisition (birth to adolescence) and explore perspectives about literacy learning. Pre-service teachers will also develop proficiency in the application of English language concepts, critical appraisal of text and analytical writing skills required for tertiary level study. Pre-service teachers will extend their conceptual understanding, knowledge and skills in professional and academic literacy practices. Active involvement in this subject supports the skill development in literacy completion of the hurdle task.
