This course investigates current theory and practice related to English language and literacy development, including effective planning, instruction, assessment, and implementation of the curriculum at the intermediate level (grades seven to ten). The course will expand on the broadened definition of literacy that is needed to examine the literacy practices of adolescents in a dynamic world.
