To Win the Game, Know the Rules and Legitimize the Players: Disciplinary Literacy and Multilingual Learners
Hickey, Pamela J.; Lewis, Tarie
Language and Literacy Spectrum, v25 p18-28 2015
Effective disciplinary literacy instruction is an essential element in the education of multilingual learners. In this article, we provide an overview of disciplinary literacy as well as instructional approaches that support meaningful pedagogy for these students. We recognize that multilingual learners are already skilled at negotiating language use for different purposes in different contexts. This article describes opportunities to build on these strengths. Essential elements of teacher knowledge and practice are presented. Multiple resources for classroom practice are included.
