ENG 441 Literacy as a Social Practice (3 credits)

An investigation of literacy as a social practice, using composition theory, enthnography, fiction, autobiography, and popular culture to define literacy and ask questions about it. With concern for the defining forces of race, class, and gender, the course explores different uses of literacy and considers the concept of a literacy "crisis." Students will compose narratives of their own literacy practices and pursue independent research on some aspect of literacy and its applications to schools, society, and quality of life. Diversity. Does not fulfill GEP Art/Lit requirement.
