New Literacy Website

Check out STEM's new Literacy Website for information on the Common Core, Disciplinary Literacy, and Reading Workshop. Future updates will include videos and strategies for implementing the Core and Disciplinary Literacy.


Look at the TEXT SETS under Disciplinary Literacy for links to articles and videos around different Science and Social Studies Topics like, Ancient Egypt, Green Energy, Global Warming, Germs, and many more!

Literacy Goal

STEM students will focus on Disciplinary Literacy development at all levels of learning based on CCSS so that 90% of our students will meet or exceed their targeted RIT growth.


Opportunities to learn Disciplinary Literacy Strategies will be coming soon!
