This subject was previously known as EDC131 Language and Literacy for Teacher.
This subject provides an introduction to language, literacy and literature in the primary school, including the centrality of these strands of English to living and learning. Effective teaching of language, literacy and literature rests upon theoretical understanding and practical appreciation of the functions of language and literacy in sociocultural contexts. The modes, textual varieties, purposes and functions of English are emphasised as students develop confidence in their own professional literacy, especially in relation to writing and multimodal forms.
