Teaching for Historical Literacy

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, June 19, 2013 10:50 AM

Because the Common Core Standards address the literacy of students in specific content areas (history & social studies and science & technical subjects) teachers, readers, and writers need to be aware of the different approaches to reading and thinking as well as the variety of genres that constitute a field's definition of "text."

Appreciate how the teacher takes students through the learning target and doesn't just say, "Here it is." Also appreciate how he works them through the academic langague.

As long as I'm promoting text pairings, might as well send you to my own blog. There is no doubt in my mind that text paring is where the Common Core is leading thinking. More than any other cognitive thought explicitly mentioned in the #CCSS is that of comparison. You cannot compare or contrast without first pairing. This is the key to developing critical citizens!

The Common Core recognizes the extensive nature of the word "text." For each discipline, the word remakes an image in the disciplinarian's mind: for a musician, the text is comprised of notes on the page or the lilting tune in the air; for the artist, the text is canvas and artist; for social scientists, the text is not only the documents but the artifacts, the context and content of events and ideas.

CCSS offers an incentive for teachers to use historic documents to build literacy skills in a content area while empowering students to be the historian in the classroom. Document-based (DBQ) instruction in this context requires four key elements to be successful.

Peter Pappas has been working with iBook to create fabulous media rich e-books for his students and he's just finished his second one. Following is his methodology for creating media-rich, informative, and engaging material for document-based instruction in the common core classroom:


  1. Choose the right documents
  2. Know how to look at them
  3. Let students discover their own patterns, then asking students to describe, compare and defend what they found
  4. Base the task on enduring questions (and ones that are meaningful to students)
