ED 466 - Language, Culture, and Literacy

(3.00 cr.)

Examines the intersection of language, culture, policy, and practice. Students explore sociocultural and sociopolitical facets of language and language use, such as ideology, identity, language change, official language, variations, dialects, and classroom discourse. Particularly, the history and impact of linguicism, or linguistic discrimination, in- and outside of school settings are considered. Students learn methods to assist linguistically diverse students in extending their literacy abilities by cultivating a learning environment that celebrates and draws upon their cultural funds of knowledge and communities of practice.
