Subject outline

In this subject you will build upon earlier studies in EDU2ELL. The subject focuses on current research in the field of literature and literacy, with an emphasis on literature, multi-literacies and the impact of multimodal resources on literacy development. The subject also has a focus on the needs of students with learning difficulties or disabilities and English as an additional language. Teaching and learning through print, visual and multimodal texts will provide insight into inclusive teaching strategies, critical literacy and the links between language, literacy and literature. This knowledge will assist students to plan and implement units of work as well as differentiating the literacy learning activities and assessment tasks for students with a specific learning need or disability.
