5140. Content Area Reading & Disciplinary Literacy

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: None.

Grading Basis: Graded

The purpose of this course is to explore and develop teaching strategies, practices and classroom routines that are supportive of both literacy development and disciplinary learning. Current research in disciplinary literacy (DL) will provide a frame for discussing these topics. DL as an approach to content-area teaching is still emerging and we will use this course as an opportunity to learn about best practices associated with content-area learning while also exploring ways to make that learning more authentic to the disciplines they represent and more meaningful to adolescents.
