Our innovative masters degree and licensure program is responsive to current changes in literacy practices, new media, and cultural that have direct impact on adolescent literacy learning. Our program builds upon and adds to the long-standing Peabody tradition of English Education and Secondary Education to help prepare English teachers address changing literacy conditions for adolescents. Committed to transformative forms of curriculum development and pedagogy for today’s youth, the program is designed around courses and student inquiry experiences that span the realities of today’s public schools and the possibilities of new designs for effective literacy learning. Concepts and practices introduced strive to bridge between the conventional and unconventional, English and other languages, conventional and new literacies. Similarly, school-based practicum experiences are juxtaposed and complemented with a Practicum in Out of School Media.
