Literacy Mash-Up: Discipline-Specific Practices Empower Content-Area Teachers
Dostal, Hannah; Gabriel, Rachael
Journal of Staff Development, v37 n2 p28-32 Apr 2016
The authors describe a process for building teachers' capacity to identify, develop, and engage in discipline-specific literacy instruction that supports both content and literacy aims. This process uses three questions to frame inquiry and guide discussions. Addressing these three questions can empower content-area teachers to incorporate literacy in ways that resonate with the content they teach while addressing the need for explicit instruction in reading and writing a wide range of text types for a wide range of purposes.
