Content Literacy: Grades 6-12
Meets: New Courses Begin Every Month
In order to succeed, students must develop literacy skills in order to access, learn, and comprehend. With the adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), teachers in all subject areas are finding themselves actively involved in their students' literacy development. In this course, you will discover literacy development strategies that make content come alive for each and every student!
You will see how new literacy standards relate to the content areas, and uncover the many ways adolescent development is connected to effective teaching. You'll explore differentiated education and see how easy it can be to deliver content to students at varying levels of literacy development. In addition, you'll analyze your current teaching practices to identify the effective literacy development that you're already doing. You'll adapt some of your favorite lessons to enhance reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language development. By the end of the course, you'll be confident in your ability to utilize the best of what's new, keep the best of what you've already got, and enjoy being a great 21st-century teacher!
