LIT5153 - Exploring Foundations of ELA

Credits: 3
The course introduces the foundations of Common Core State Standards as illustrated by the integration of English and language arts applications for developing communications skills across disciplines. Specific examples explore the paradigm shift to rigorous and relevant study of real-world applications to prepare students to use language effectively, developing an appreciation for the world beyond the classroom as found in writings and through the use of other literacies in relation to significant historical events and global perspectives. Principles and methods of inquiry to foster critical and creative thinking are utilized to examine methods for introducing core ideas which have shaped understanding from past eras to present day.
