ENGL 601 - Diversity in English Language Arts

Credits: (3)
Prerequisites: None
This course investigates the nature of cultural, linguistic, literary, and exceptional diversity, including dialect communities and discourse communities. Discourse styles among exceptional populations with varying levels of communicative competence such as autistic learners and ESL groups will also be covered. Specific applications include the nature of communicative competence, of digital literacies, and the use of mediating devices (e.g., text-to-speech software, touchscreen tablets, e-readers, etc.) in communicative practice and in Universal Design for Learning (UDL) environments. Students design lesson and unit plans for a variety of language arts topics and specifically for populations as noted above, and in alignment with Response to Intervention (RTI) and other contemporary curricular developments (e.g., Common Core, etc.)
