LYST 245 - Revaluing Readers and Writers


Semester Hours: 3 s.h.
January
In this course, the construct of learning disability is critically examined in terms of its social contexts and the cultural space in which it operates. This course embraces social, linguistic and transactional views of reading and writing, language, learning, teaching, and how curriculum and “normality” shape our responses to those perceived as “struggling.” This course addresses the following strands: revaluing students who struggle with reading and writing; strategies for supporting and scaffolding meaning-making processes; and the nature of reading and language.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Completion of Phase I courses.
