Preparing Literacy Teachers in an Age of Multiple Literacies: A Self-Reflective Approach
Causarano, Antonio
Reading Matrix: An International Online Journal, v15 n2 p196-209 Sep 2015
This article discusses the importance of rethinking the content and delivery of literacy instruction in university courses for pre-service and in-service teachers by aligning curriculum and instruction to new literacies to prepare the next generations of teachers to support the literacy learning of students in K-12 schools in the 21st century. The author proposes rethinking curriculum and instruction in literacy courses by building up on the recommendations of the Middle State Commission on Higher Education to rethink our curriculum and instruction in literacy courses in higher education.
