Does Disciplinary Literacy Have a Place in Elementary School?

Does Disciplinary Literacy Have a Place in Elementary School? | Disciplinary Literacy | Scoop.it
Few issues are hotter now than disciplinary literacy. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) established disciplinary reading goals for grades 6–12, and most of the research on that topic has been done at those grades, too. That means elementary teachers can breathe a sigh of relief, right? Not really. There might not be specific disciplinary goals set for the young'uns, but elementary teachers still have an important role to play if their students are to eventually reach college- and career-readiness.

Fantastic Resource: Reading Like Historians | Disciplinary Literacy | Scoop.it

That said, check out this wonderful collection of videos from The Teaching Channel around “reading like a historian.” We’re brought right into the classroom, and the issues of teaching content-area reading are really front and center along a few threads: an overview, the evaluation of sources, putting history in context, and corroboration of information. I am definitely sharing this with collection with my colleagues.

Integrating #CommonCore ELA Strategies into the Social Studies Classroom

Integrating #CommonCore ELA Strategies into the Social Studies Classroom | Disciplinary Literacy | Scoop.it

Shift 1: Balancing Informational Text and Literature

Shift 2: Building Knowledge in the Disciplines

Shift 3: Staircase of Complexity

Shift 4: Text Based Answers

Shift 5: Writing from Sources

Shift 6: Academic Vocabulary

These shifts have direct implications for the social studies classroom. The increased focus on both informational text and close reading provides social studies teachers with unique opportunities to support student learning.

Mark Gillingham's curator insight, March 4, 2014 5:34 PM

It's important that the entire school set goals, help teachers implement strategies that meet the standards, and also meet the students where they are so they can be pushed further.

Not the most recent post on Common Core Implementation, but truly practical and necessary! Sometimes in our quest for new, we overlook good.
