What is disciplinary literacy instruction?
Why is there a significant need for disciplinary literacy instruction?
My Reader Profile
Where: I read in bed, on the beach, and while traveling. I can never read in the car due to motion sickness.
When: My favorite time to read is before bed, so I can fall asleep easily.
How: If I find myself having to reread because I am not paying attention, I begin to read out loud.
Why: I read the news because I like to keep up with the world and I read for entertainment.
More About My Profile as a Disciplinary Reader
I have never been taught how to take on mathematics, physical science and biological science.
I am not interested in technical and health and fitness as topics, but I do not find them challenging to read.
