If Rosa Parks Could Text: Content Area Writing in the Literacy Block

These are the slides I created for my session at the North Carolina Reading Conference, held in Raleigh, North Carolina, March 15-17, 2015. The essence of this presentation is about the necessary Intermediate Literacy writing skills necessary as students are "learning to write" and learning the content at the same time. Disciplinary literacy may be a bit of stretch for elementary but we can begin teaching students how to read and write like a historian, how to read and write like a scientist, and how to read and write like a mathematician. #ncra15 Accompanying handouts are on my Slideshare page, too. #presentationzen #contentareawriting #writingaboutreading #disciplinaryliteracy #writingtolearn I am happy to come and deliver this enthusiastic and energetic professional development session to your school or district.
