Language and Literacy as Lens for Learning (RE219S)

In this class, we explore how the languaging process affects our understanding of literacy acquisition. By looking into our own literacy practices, we learn more about the multiple, often divergent, ways literacy develops. The goal is to build a nuanced perspective on literacy processes in order to complicate our teaching craft.

Mentor Biography

I am from Monmouth County, NJ, a graduate of Loyola class of 2008 and have worked for the university since 2009. I am now in graduate school at Loyola, hoping to finish my master’s next spring. In my current position at Loyola I don’t frequently have the opportunity to work with students, so I am looking forward to Messina in the fall.
