How can students achieve communicative competence in the languages we teach? What is communicative competence anyway? How can we create lessons that draw on multiliteracy pedagogy— an approach that integrates language and other modes of communication— as useful resources to help students achieve communicative competence? Through readings, critical reflection, discussion, and practice, students in this course will address these questions and learn how to create engaging lesson plans and increase opportunities for students to use the languages we teach for communicative, contextualized purposes.
