LYST 213 - Introduction to Bilingual and Biliteracy Instruction for Children and Adolescents


Semester Hours: 3
Fall, Spring, Summer
This course explores the cultural, linguistic, political and pedagogical aspects involved in the process of developing school literacies in bi/multicultural classrooms. Literacy development is discussed in the perspective of supporting learners to use biliteracy as a tool to understand, to extend, and to act upon their worlds. Topics include the relationship between oral and written language processes in bilingual/biliterate students, and the interaction between languages during literacy and language learning. The course examines the literate pedagogical needs and assessment procedures of bilingual and biliterate learners within special and general education contexts. All theoretical explorations are nested in the learning processes of individuals with bicultural literacy experiences, including students who are considered to have special education needs. A 10-hour field experience is required.
