Course aim

To engage students with theoretical perspectives and teaching and learning strategies for reading and writing conventional, multimodal and literary texts.

Course content

Students will develop knowledge of text production from a semiotic perspective, inclusive of linguistic and non-linguistic modalities and of a range of production technologies. Students will also focus on text reception, meaning reading and viewing. Students will develop practical skills of producing and interpreting texts in a range of genres using a range of methods. They will learn how educators, working within current English curriculum frameworks, employ specific strategies to facilitate and assess literacy development in educational contexts from early childhood to the middle years.
