In this subject students will develop critical knowledge of English language and literacy as socio-cultural practice. Students will learn how oral language is acquired, and explore the relationships between language, literacy and literature. Students will conduct, and report on, an investigation into everyday literacy practices of young children with a particular focus on the central role of the picture book in many of these practices. They will explore the features of texts (literary, factual and multimodal) which support the literacy learning of young children between 0 and 8 years of age, create an original picture book, trial the book and reflect on the outcomes of these processes in the light of relevant socio-cultural practice literature.
