Welcome to Literacy in the Content Areas!
Friends and Colleagues,
I have created this wiki as a space and place for literacy and content area teachers to find resources, discuss issues, and share classroom applications for powerful literacy learning. Each member is invited as a co-creator and contributor.
The goal of this wiki is to support one another in our efforts to create effective literacy practices that enable our young readers and writers to succeed. This site will provide you with various links to resources and ideas that can be used at every level and in all content areas to integrate thinking strategies and develop literacy and critical thinking skills into all units of study.
Teaching students to understand literacy beyond letters and sound is no simple task. It begins with defining literacy in a world sense; as an act of communication and privilege rather than a simplistic set of master-able skills.
You can enter the wiki at anyplace, but the following sequence can help you get started by answering the following questions about literacy and learning.
What makes readers and writers successful?
What Elements need to be included in my literacy program?
What is the "best" framework for organizing and managing my day?
How does that look? Time, materials, schedules, etc...?
What happens during Reading and Writing workshop?
Where do I start? What will the first few weeks of school look like?
What do I need to teach students at the beginning of the year?
What about the skills? Is there a scope and sequence to follow?
Are there things that I need to have for planning the lessons?
What resources and materials can support my work?
Are there resources for mini lessons? Comprehension strategies?
What does the research say?
