WR 327 - Civic Literacy

(3.00 cr.)

Students investigate the theoretical and experiential nature of literacy/literacies as a central form of civic action and social justice. Students collaborate with a local adult literacy program in Baltimore in a project-based service-learning model. By integrating theory (readings) and practice (service) through a variety of assignments such as essays, journals, advocacy pieces, and exams, this course challenges students to see literacy as multifaceted and to think critically about the links between literacy and choice, power, democracy, and freedom.

Prerequisite: WR 100 .
Sessions Typically Offered: Fall/Spring/Summer
