Constructing Language and Cultural Learning as a Social Activity (EDU2253.01)

Bryce Smedley

In this course we will explore the socio-/psycholinguistic dimensions of language, literacy and culture. Models of theories of language acquisition will be examined including both oral and written language. Additionally, different types of discourse will be analyzed as to how they might impact literacy and language development for both first and second languages. The course will also stress the importance of language learning as a social activity and the creation of language clubs, and the possibilities of language acquisition as a means for transformative learning.
