Disciplinary Literacy in Elementary Classrooms

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

4:30-6:00

Sand Creek Middle School Library

329 Sand Creek Road, Albany

Dr. Virginia J. Goatley

What is disciplinary literacy? What does it look like in elementary classrooms? How do we use reading, writing, and talk as tools for learning in unique and discipline specific ways? This talk will address recent shifts in teaching the disciplines, introduce key concepts about current literacy instruction, and explore how to use literacies as tools for learning disciplinary content.  Drawing on examples from K-6, we’ll consider how to promote high-level thinking and engagement with disciplinary content and address implications of using the Common Core for curriculum development and instruction, situated in research-based best practices.
