Literacy Materials deals with the design and production of literacy materials for different stages of literacy development and a range of target groups, purposes and contexts. Students will be enabled to produce materials for adults and children that take into account theoretical understandings of literacy acquisition (covered in Literacy Education); good design principles; practicalities of the situation; available technology as well as linguistic, motivational and cultural factors. They will then design pages of a manual to train local tutors to teach using these literacy materials.
