Join Adolescent Literacy Consultant Rachel Daniels for a 3-part in-person series on disciplinary literacy. Participants will read, write and discuss to deepen their understanding of how authentic literacy practices that mirror the work of the field provide an engaging path to content area learning.
DAY 1 (February 27): What is Disciplinary Literacy: Participants will learn the nuances between content area and disciplinary literacy, look at how all teachers across a school site have a role to play in a student's literacy journey and explore best practices in literacy. From classroom video examples and strategies to research and planning for implementation, a toolkit will be developed.
DAY 2 (March 22): Discourse Across the Content Areas: Participants will explore research, tools and resources to create cultures of discourse in their classrooms. From the exploration of the advantages of discourse to a discussion of frames for utilizing academic language, the toolkit from Session 1 will continue to be developed.
DAY 3 (May 4): Reading and Writing Across the Content Areas: Participants will explore research, tools and resources to create cultures of reading and writing in their classrooms. Using a variety of sources, attendees will deep dive into before, during and after strategies and align them to the standards of their discipline. This session will culminate by adding more resources to the toolkit along with time to synthesize learning.
