Foundational Strategies to Support Disciplinary Literacy
Note: This program was originally available as part of the Adolescent Language and Literacy: Supporting Emotional, Social, and Academic Growth conference.
Discipline-specific strategies cannot replace general strategy instruction for adolescents who struggle with reading and writing. The problem is that these struggling readers and writers do not possess the foundational skills and strategies to be proficient with disciplinary literacy. One solution is for content teachers to collaborate with specialists who can instruct students in the foundational strategies that support disciplinary literacy skills, working toward positive post-secondary outcomes and workforce readiness.
You will be able to:
- describe discipline-specific strategy instruction
- describe general strategy instruction
- identify discipline-specific research trends for struggling adolescents
- compare the attributes of discipline-specific strategy instruction and general strategy instruction
