Content area teachers outside of the ELA classroom emphasize literacy experiences in their planning and instruction. Students learn through domain-specific texts in science and social studies classrooms – rather than referring to the text, they are expected to learn from what they read.
Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.
Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence.
(AKA Everything Else)
Social Studies Grade 9-10Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including vocabulary describing political, social, or economic aspects of history/social studies.
Science Grade 9-10 Analyze the author’s purpose in providing an explanation, describing a procedure, or discussing an experiment in a text, defining the question the author seeks to address.
Technical Subjects Grade 9-10 Develop claim(s) and counterclaims fairly, supplying data and evidence for each while pointing out the strengths and limitations of both claim(s) and counterclaims in a discipline-appropriate form and in a manner that anticipates the audience’s knowledge level and concerns.
Curriculum & Instruction
Need to focus on areas of inquiry - not specific standards in isolation
Content area teachers and language arts/literacy teachers will need to plan and work together to help students meet the standards
Teachers must place an emphasis on thinking with/about texts in all forms, including digital formats
Develop Units that recognize that less is more
Literacy tasks across the curriculum must address application of literacy standards in History/Social Studies, Science, Math, and Technical Subjectsin all areas of study.
