Habits of Practice: Expanding Disciplinary Literacy Frameworks Through a Physical Education Lens
Wickens, Corrine M.; Manderino, Michael; Parker, Jenny; Jung, Jinhong
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v59 n1 p75-82 Jul-Aug 2015
In recent years, disciplinary literacy has been at the forefront of adolescent literacy research and practice but has largely focused on the four core content areas: English language arts, social studies, science, and mathematics. Drawing on a physical education lens, this article is a call to expand the definitions, approaches, and framework of disciplinary literacy by examining three critical issues for disciplinary literacy: focus on the disciplinary expert (i.e., thinking like a historian, a mathematician, a scientist, etc.), emphasis on cognition over other forms of engagement and disciplinary practice, and notions of student participation and activity.
