Understanding the importance of literacy as the foundation of learning, together we will investigate the complex nature of advancing literacy skills across all disciplines. We will explore practices that address the six essential domains of adolescent literacy instruction:
- Disciplinary literacy
- Vocabulary discussion
- Digital literacy
- Multiple texts
- Writing to learn
We will read and discuss This is Disciplinary Literacy by ReLeah Cossett Lent (book provided) and examine how clarity, habits of the mind, and vocabulary are impacted in disciplinary literacy.
Together we will build a solid theoretical framework of adolescent literacy and disciplinary literacy, and develop and implement literacy plans.
- read the provided book and participate in the online office hours discussions between sessions
- bring a copy of their district’s Local Literacy Plan
- reflect upon the relevant, specific RTFI questions as a pre- and post-test
