How can teachers integrate and accelerate literacy and subject-area learning in science, history, and English language arts?
In today's schools, every subject involves discipline-specific text, so all students need support to develop the critical literacy skills required to use and understand those texts.
How can educators help diverse students participate successfully in the complex literacy practices required of the California State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards?
To help secondary educators examine these types of questions, the Strategic Literacy Initiative is showcasing educators using their evidence-based Reading Apprenticeship framework, which is based on more than twenty years of experience researching and learning how teachers incorporate disciplinary literacy strategies in their classrooms.
In this webinar series, participants will learn how educators can build literacy skills within a collaborative classroom context that supports all students to engage with academically challenging text, take a problem-solving stance, persevere, and succeed. When effective and academic development are linked, deep changes in teachers' practices and students' engagement and achievement happen.
This webinar will explore social-emotional learning and literacy in science.
