The New York State Next Generation Standards call for literacy to be taught and assessed across all content areas. As a result, teachers of science, social studies, special education, and ELA are faced with the challenge of balancing reading and writing development with the vast content they are required to teach. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice strategies that will help students become more thoughtful and confident readers while not sacrificing your own content-area requirements. Sue and John will share examples of practical instructional practices and curriculum resources to help your students develop a deeper understanding of your course content, while also improving their ability to read complex texts and write with passion and proficiency.
Conference Participants Will:
Review and discuss how reading standards are aligned across curricula in science, social studies and ELA.
Discuss the challenges of incorporating literacy strategies without sacrificing content.
Introduce and practice reading strategies using texts from across content areas.
Introduce and practice approaches to developing confidence for the struggling and/or reluctant readers.
Introduce and practice strategies that facilitate student writing across content areas.
