Shanahan on Literacy: Disciplinary Writing | Literacy | Scoop.it

I am writing to you for some suggestions and recommendations concerning working with science and social studies teachers in light of the writing standards in the common core.  I am a former English teacher with 35 years of experience and have, for the past seven years, worked to develop and present workshops and classes for content area teachers in reading – focusing on both disciplinary and content literacy.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 28, 2013 9:16 PM

The Common Core standards state: 

"To be ready for college, workforce training, and life in a technological society, students need the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information and ideas, to conduct original research in order to answer questions or solve problems, and to analyze and create a high volume and extensive range of print and nonprint texts in media forms old and new."

This post shares a few of the many resources available at PBS LearningMedia (at no cost). The focus here is on strengthening media literacy. Clicking through to PBS will provide you with access to over 30,000 resources.

Digital Literacy in the Classroom? There is a TED Talk for that!

Digital Literacy in the Classroom? There is a TED Talk for that! | Literacy | Scoop.it

"As web companies strive to tailor their services (including news and search results) to our personal tastes, there’s a dangerous unintended consequence: We get trapped in a “filter bubble” and don’t get exposed to information that could challenge or broaden our worldview. Eli Pariser argues powerfully that this will ultimately prove to be bad for us and bad for democracy. Description from TED Talk site."
