Essential Practices for Disciplinary Literacy Instruction in the Secondary Classroom

LinkIntroduction Tool to the "Essential Practices for Disciplinary Literacy Instruction in the Secondary Classroom"

Our students learn the foundations of literacy throughout their elementary school years. As students continue to develop their skills through middle school and high school, literacy instruction must also help them meet increasingly complex subject area demands. These demands include developing the critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills specific to each discipline.  Introduction Tool

LinkEssential Practices for Disciplinary Literacy Instruction in the Secondary Classroom, Grades 6 to 12

The purpose of this set of essential instructional practices for grades 6 through 12 is to improve Michigan students’ academic literacies and content learning at the secondary level. Professional development throughout the state can focus on these research-supported literacy instructional practices for regular use in the classroom. Expert research suggests that 10 sets of practices outlined in this document can have a positive impact on both literacy development and conceptual learning of content. The consistent use of these practices in every Michigan classroom can make a measurable, positive difference in student learning and improve the state’s literacy achievement.

Resource Hubs

The purpose of the Resource Hubs Drive folder is to support ISD/RESA/RESD consultants, teacher leaders, professional development facilitators, and teachers as they implement disciplinary literacy instructional practices in their districts, schools, and classrooms. This document is not meant to replace teacher collaboration and discussions; rather, it is intended to support those conversations. It is the hope of the Disciplinary Literacy Task Force members that teachers will engage in collaborative inquiry cycles around areas of practice that best fit teachers' current context. Starting points will vary depending on grade level, subject area, current initiatives, and other contextual factors.
