This unit is designed to prepare teachers of literacy and English in the information age. Students will examine the development of listening, speaking, reading and writing/creating print, digital and multimodal texts in the early and later years of schooling. Students will research the needs of diverse young literacy learners and contemporary literacy and English teaching practice and will engage with a variety of pedagogical and assessment approaches, and explore a range of literacies encountered by young learners including visual and digital literacies.
