This volume foregrounds the disciplinary literacy approach to college teaching and learning with in-depth discussions of theory and research, as well as extensive classroom illustrations. Built upon the current work of READ (Reading Effectively Across the Disciplines), a disciplinary literacy program at New York City College of Technology, it presents a broad collection of methodologies, strategies, and best practices with discipline-specific considerations. It offers an overview of the program informed by evidence-based research and practices in college disciplinary learning, describing how its unique model addresses the literacy needs of students in STEM and professional studies. Chapter authors, including administrators, literacy specialists, and content experts discuss program design, professional development, and assessments. They also outline strategies to foster disciplinary literacy pedagogy and college success in five content areas, including Accounting, Architecture, Biology, Electromechanical Engineering, and Mathematics.

This accessible book will help elementary school teachers improve literacy instruction inside or outside the Common Core environment. The authors address teachers’ instructional needs by introducing key concepts from current trends in literacy education—from high-level standards to the use of 21st-century literacies. Readers then follow teachers as they successfully implement the curriculum they developed to promote high-level thinking and engagement with disciplinary content. The text focuses on three disciplinary literacy units of instruction: a science unit in a 2nd-grade classroom, a social studies (history) unit in a 4th-grade classroom, and a mathematics unit in a 6th-grade classroom. Each unit revolves around a central inquiry question and includes research-based strategies for using reading, writing, and classroom talk as tools to foster disciplinary understandings. This unique, insider’s look at how real teachers build and implement a Common Core–aligned curriculum will be an invaluable resource for teachers, schools, and districts as they move forward to align their own curricula. “I can’t imagine a more timely book . . . a set of elegant principles and some stunning examples of how teachers can use reading, writing, and talk to enhance learning in the science, social studies, and mathematics classroom.” —P. David Pearson, professor of language and literacy and human development, Graduate School of Education, University of California, Berkeley “If you’re wondering how to integrate literacy across the content disciplines, this is the text you will want to keep and return to often.” —Diane Lapp, distinguished professor of education, San Diego State University “Inspiring, and better still, infectious!” —Donald R. Bear, Iowa State University “Provides concrete ideas for teaching students to use literacy to think like scientists, historians, and mathematicians.” —Douglas Fisher, professor of educational leadership, San Diego State University, and teacher leader, Health Sciences High and Middle College

You wouldn’t tell a heart surgeon to also do pediatrics—so why would we tell content area educators they must “do” literacy? Math, history, English and science teachers are passionate about their specialties, and that’s why authors Releah Lent and Marsha Voight designed a framework that keeps teachers’ subjects at the center of daily classroom life while also helping them pool strengths with colleagues. Based on years of successful implementation, this powerful PL cycle “drops in” seamlessly to any school setting, so teachers schoolwide take on innovative practices of reading, writing, thinking, and doing within their areas of expertise.

"This book focuses on how elementary teachers might plan for and incorporate digitally-supported disciplinary literacy into English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies to reach all learners. To do so, the authors present the six-phase Planning Elementary Digitally-Supported Literacy (PEDDL) Framework, along with four core practices useful for considering elementary disciplinary literacy. After grounding disciplinary literacy in elementary grades, how it might support all learners, and the rationale for its inclusion in K-5 instruction, core practices are presented, along with a rationale behind those practices. Then, the authors provide an in-depth overview of the PEDDL Framework with examples and research-based underpinnings of each phase. Finally, a paired chapter approach then guides readers through each of the four core disciplines to first overview practices particular to each discipline that are appropriate for elementary grades and then provide detailed lesson planning approaches using the PEDDL Framework for each. Supplementary lesson plan examples are also offered in this book for extended consideration of digitally-supported disciplinary literacy across K-5"--

In this practical guide, literacy experts show teachers how to use project-based inquiry to build students’ discipline-specific skills and knowledge in grades 6–12. The authors present a five-phase framework that incorporates their professional development experience working with over 3,000 teachers. By making the intuitive practices of the disciplines explicit within an inquiry process, students have opportunities to construct new knowledge by employing practices used by literary critics, scientists, historians, and mathematicians. Read, Write, Inquire responds to the current focus on disciplinary literacy across multiple sets of standards, offering a clear blueprint to help teachers meet these standards while also providing students with deep learning across the curriculum. “This unique approach encourages students to adopt sophisticated literacy practices in the same way the disciplines developed them—as a natural outgrowth of knowledge creation.” —Timothy Shanahan, distinguished professor emeritus, University of Illinois at Chicago

What do you get when a high school English teacher, a middle school literacy coach, and an elementary school teacher realize that the old adage of "every teacher is a teacher of reading" misses the bigger picture? Jacy Ippolito, Christina Dobbs, and Megin Charner-Laird have spent the last decade trying to answer that question, working with teachers across grade levels, conducting studies and analyzing research in order to build a more comprehensive instructional strategy that engages with any group of students in every content area. The answer they came to is disciplinary literacy. Combined with the RAND model for reading comprehension and the Inquiry Cycle, Ippolito, Dobbs, and Charner-Laird have produced a framework for teaching and learning that develops the skills all students need to succeed outside of school. Disciplinary Literacy doesn't ask for all teachers to be general reading teachers; it asks for all educators to empower students to adopt and eventually adapt the language, genres, and modalities prized by each discipline"¬‚¬"to give students the tools to take on professional identities. This book provides research-based frameworks, guiding questions and examples, and lots of stories from teachers who have already walked the path of Disciplinary Literacy Inquiry and Instruction"¬‚¬"it's for educators who want to take ownership of their own learning alongside like-minded colleagues, and raise the achievement of all their students.
