Connections 20070. Language and Literacy

This connection will provide a means for students to examine what it means to be an American through an active, engaged literacy. In ENG 256, students practice critical analysis of text that are depictions of and reflections on this process. In EDUC 240, critical analysis often centers on the non-neutrality of texts and contexts, as well as the idea that literacy is not always liberating or empowering and thus is often used to marginalize or limit opportunity.

Connections:
EDUC 240 Multiple Perspectives on Literacy
and ENG 256 The Novel in Multi-Ethnic America
