EDU 241 - Critical Literacy for the 21st Century Learner


Credit(s): 3
This course is designed for all undergraduate students. Students will learn not only to think and read critically, but will also learn to “do” critical literacy as a means of understanding the driving forces (power) and intentions behind text. Critical literacy is the act of determining who is empowered and disempowered and who is included and who is left out of text. Text is understood as a variety of modes of communication: printed words, art, music, architecture, conversations, video and audio, to name a few. Students will learn how to deconstruct text using critical literacy strategies and reconstruct it to make it more equitable. This course is designed to help students enhance both reading and writing skills. Specific reading comprehension and pertinent study skills will be discussed in-depth and embedded in the processes taught in this course. FA, SP
