Connections will be made between theory and practice by relating current theories of language development and acquisition, to students' own literacy capacities and literacy learning experiences. In addition, theories of language and literacy will be examined in terms of their implications for teaching and learning, and the literacy demands/requirements of various curriculum areas.
