Disciplinary Literacy for the Common Core
Training and Resources for Science and Social Studies Teachers
Adopting the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) requires teachers to re-conceptualize their approach to teaching and push student expectations beyond skill acquisition to skill application. The new standards demand that all teachers incorporate literacy skills and make explicit connections to these skills in all content areas. Disciplinary Literacy development is now a shared responsibility across subjects.
Our Disciplinary Literacy for the Common Core program was developed to support your middle and high school science and social studies teachers as they make this important transition.
Our expert consultants begin with a readiness assessment and collaborative planning sessions designed to build awareness and buy-in. We use the results as the basis for collaboratively developing a job-embedded professional development program designed to engage teachers and leaders and build sustainable capacity.
