Language and Literacy Education
Language and Literacy Education encompasses the teaching and learning of literacy, reading and writing, literature, and language and languages in the compulsory sector. It also includes contexts beyond schooling such as academic literacy and writing in tertiary contexts, and literacy for adults in the community and in workplaces.
Specialist areas include but are not restricted to: Critical literacy, Dyslexia, Bilingualism, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), Teaching Languages other than English.
Papers are offered at undergraduate and postgraduate level. We encourage students to plan a pathway both within and between undergraduate and postgraduate papers, and to bridge into research at a higher level by doing a Directed Study (ALED590).
Initial enquiries should be made to the Postgraduate Studies Office, School of Education.
Note: The following 100-300 level papers are available to all University of Waikato students except where the subject code is TEAL in which case papers are only available to students enrolled in a School of Education teacher education programme.
