How we got schooled: the rhetoric of literacy and education

PWR 2JPA - Winter 2016 - Instructor: Peterson, J.

This is a guide to resources in support of PWR 2JPA: How We Got Schooled: The Rhetoric of Literacy and Education. "How did you learn to read? The quick answer is in school. But how did you learn to read things other than books, for instance, websites, movies, people?....In this course, we'll look closely these learning processes."


"This encyclopedia documents what the best research has revealed about what is distinctive about out-of-school learning: what facilitates or hampers it; where it takes place most effectively; how we can encourage it to develop talents and strengthen communities; and why it matters."
"This handbook engages in an expanisve conversation about consequential literacy learning and the forms of educaiton change needed to create equitable, sustainable, and robuse learning ecologies."
