EDUC 140 Community Literacy

Occidental students work in the Academic Commons one-on-one with children from the community. While incorporating arts and integrating technology, students will engage their child with a variety of Language Arts activities in order to reconnect their child with the joy of reading and writing for pleasure. Students will build on their child's strengths, skills, and interests by using culturally relevant pedagogy and critical literacy explorations. Students become part of a high-warmth, low-criticism community. Graded on a Credit/No Credit basis only. May be repeated for credit.
