Promoting Learning through Content Literacy Instruction
Misulis, Katherine E.
American Secondary Education, v37 n3 p10-19 Sum 2009
Research has confirmed that many students in the middle grades and high schools experience serious challenges with respect to content area tasks that involve literacy. Over time, educators have become more knowledgeable and informed about content literacy instructional practices for developing vocabulary, comprehension, study strategies, and writing. However, consistent and long-term application of content literacy practices remains a challenge and a goal. This article examines theoretical bases associated with content literacy instruction. In addition, selected content literacy strategies are presented and described. (Contains 2 figures.)
