New Literacies and Emerging Technologies across the Content Areas

This course explores the changing landscape of reading and writing as emerging technologies place new demands, challenges, and opportunities for readers and writers. To do so, this course aims to deepen students' understandings of the reading and writing processes with written, hyper, and multi-modal texts as well as content-specific strategies for assisting K-12 students' development in these processes. This include selecting developmentally appropriate reading materials and composition activities for a range of learners; identifying prerequisite skills, concepts, and vocabulary necessary for content-specific learning activities; and determining which strategies best meet particular content learning objectives. In doing so, techniques for incorporating new technologies into teaching as well as the legal and ethical challenges for both teachers and students will be examined. This course includes a field-based component.
