Literacy Leaders Team Intensive
Disciplinary literacy in the context of the Common Core
Come review the latest research, engage in conversation and planning, and develop a literacy lead team!
Registration for the two day session will cost $200.00 for those people who register BEFORE June 30 (payment can be sent later). After June 30, registration will increase to $250.00. Your registration fee includes a subscription to the School of Education’s Teaching and Learning Exploratory (TLE), an online library of teaching videos with tools for engagement and sharing, as well as basic instruction on how to use the TLE.
During the intensive, we will engage with the following questions:
*How DO literacy practices differ across content areas and disciplines?
*How do we design and implement learning activities that are aligned to content expectations and also support disciplinary literacy in different content areas?
*What instructional practices for disciplinary literacy are supported by the research base and how can I promote them in our schools and classrooms? How can we best support and develop academic vocabulary in this context?
*What are the limitations of the current research base with respect to secondary literacy?
*How do we develop disciplinary literacy for all students, not just advanced learners?
*How do we support and promote this work across multiple contexts?
