Learners will review the standards in their disciplines and understand how the teaching of literacy is a school-wide responsibility. They will also examine teacher behaviors, pedagogical approaches, and students’ skills and attitudes surrounding the development of CCSS in the respective disciplines. They will then have guided practice examining, discussing, and creating learning activities for their students that integrate the North Carolina Essential Standards and the Common Core Literacy Standards for disciplines in grades 6–12.
Because this module follows on from Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects Part 1, it is recommended that you first complete the previous module to gain a foundation knowledge of the standards and of the concept of disciplinary literacy.
Participants will create the following in completing this module, and central office staff may, at their discretion, request these work products before granting CEUs.
