Summer Literacy Institute Graduate Class

Course Description

EDUC595/EDSL595: Literacy Out Loud! will be offered in conjunction with the Institute. Effective communication is the primary goal of literacy. This course will explore how reading and writing are integrally and substantially supported by speaking, listening, and viewing in a complete literacy environment. Participants will develop and refine strategies for read aloud, writing for performance, and active listening and viewing. Topics of study will include oral literacy (song, talk, storytelling, recitation) and the oral tradition both past and present (folk and fairy tales, urban legend, YouTube, media).
