ELL Seminar: Envisioning Knowledge by Distinguished Professor Judith A. Langer

Professor Langer will begin with a discussion of movements in the United States and other countries toward college and career readiness and how these intersect (or don’t) with other strong concerns regarding the development of creative and innovative thinking.   These movements can stand in tension with one another as well as with the move to incorporate literacy instruction into all subject coursework, including English language and literature.   From here, she will call on her latest book (2011), Envisioning Knowledge, to offer a way to think about both knowledge and literacy within the specific disciplines. Ample time will be left for discussion.
