Disciplinary Literacy: Deeper Learning in All Content Areas: The paradigm is shifting, thankfully, so that now ELA teachers are not the only ones responsible for teaching kids to read, write, and utilize other forms of literacy.  It’s not that science, math, or social studies teachers are expected to “become teachers of reading.” Instead, a disciplinary literacy approach shows teachers how to infuse content-specific literacy as a tool to increase learning.  That means kids are taught to read documents as historians, write lab notes as scientists, and communicate about problems as mathematicians. As for ELA teachers, they can support literacy learning within the disciplines, but they are free to concentrate on their own content. This workshop honors the expertise of all teachers while helping them integrate literacy as an inherent part of everyday lessons.
