Content Counts: Developing Disciplinary Literacy Skills for Grades K-5
Questions? Contact Amy Ruppert, program assistant: 920.236.0562
With so much emphasis on literacy in the elementary grades, how do you give math, science, and social studies the attention they deserve? How do you make content count without sacrificing the precious time spent on nurturing literacy development? This one-day workshop will give participants an innovative approach to disciplinary literacy. There will be time to try out the activities to promote disciplinary literacy skills in the content areas. Teachers will rethink content literacy instruction with K-5 learners in mind.
- Meet comprehension demands through the grades.
- Communicate content knowledge orally.
- Create content connections through writing.
- Develop viewing skills for content reading.
Who should attend?
Grades K-5 teachers, reading specialists, curriculum coordinators, and principals.
CESA 6 makes every effort to accommodate basic dietary needs such as vegetarian,
gluten free and basic food allergies. Because of the number of meals served and the
number of items used each day, along with food product changes from our food
vendors, we cannot guarantee that every allergen in the food served will be
identified and labeled. Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this
risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or
items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event.
To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your
MyQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section. Notice of a
special dietary need must be made in advance of the event.
