Academic and Critical Literacies


Credit-bearing ACL courses (150, 195, 200, 250) are courses in the field of Literacy Studies. Literacy Studies is an interdisciplinary field of study that examines literacy acts and events as social acts. These courses focus on topics like helping children/adolescents to practice literacy skills, understanding historical perspectives on the development of literacy policy, examining how literacy events and acts are shaped by society and culture, and exploring the intersectional relationship between identity and literacy acts/events. Students not only learn about the nature of literacy from examining theory and research but also as informed by practical applications of knowledge.
