No faculty information available
This course will explore the nature and function of "schooling" (formal and informal) with particular attention to issues of cultural and critical literacy, especially as these concepts inform our teaching of writing and reading in both print and digital contexts. Works to be studied will include essays and books by contemporary educators and cultural theorists, including Althusser, Bakhtin, Bartholomae, Berthoff, Bourdieu, Elbow, Freire, Heath, hooks, Lu, Ong, Pratt, Scholes, Shaughnessy, Patricia Williams, Raymond Williams, and others. We will also consider a number of literary texts (including Shaw's Pygmalion, Douglass's Narrative, Borges's "Library of Babel"). Written assignments and class discussion will focus on teaching and curriculum development, with particular attention to the integration of reading and writing.
