content literacy
Content Literacy

Reading is focused by the domain of knowledge in which it is employed. To read well in any discipline is to think well in that discipline. Each discipline has a conceptual vocabulary. Each has a manner of statement. Each has structures through which it develops, applies and appraises its ideas.

How do teachers become proficient in TWIRL in their classrooms?

The best model for becoming proficient with planning and implementing strategic lessons is when teachers work collaboratively within or across content areas to support one another to implement strategic teaching.

Teacher Responsibility

I do it.

Guided Instruction

We do it.

We do it together.

Collaboratively

We do it alone.

Independently

Student Responsibility

flexible grouping
Flexible Grouping
  • Purposeful reordering of students into working groups to ensure that all students work with a wide variety of classmates and in a wide range of contexts during a relatively short span of class time
  • Allows teacher to “audition” each student in a variety of arrangements
  • This is a regular feature of a strategic teacher’s instructional planning
