Disciplinary Literacy Grades 5-12

Disciplinary literacy needs to be seen not as an add-on, but as a means to deeper understanding and transfer of learning for all students. The focus of this course is on creating the instructional skills necessary to deepen student understanding. Teachers enrolled in this course will examine and analyze the unique characteristics of the literacy patterns of their individual discipline and acquire strategies for addressing these patterns in order to improve comprehension. Participants will leave this course equipped to address discipline-specific literacies and to prepare students for college and careers.
