Description:   This collaborative session is designed for district teams or individuals involved in Social Studies standards rollout. The Wisconsin Standards for Literacy in All Subjects, adopted in 2011, require all teachers, K-12, in every content area, to consider discipline-appropriate literacy techniques (also known as disciplinary literacy) with their students. Disciplinary literacy (DL) in social studies means that teachers are using thoughtfully chosen literacy techniques to teach students social studies objectives (not using social studies to learn literacy objectives).  How do the WI Standards for Social Studies tie to DL?  Very well, in fact.  Learn connections between the two documents, resources for incorporating DL into classrooms and curriculum, and have time to review your existing curriculum for gaps.

Session Focus/Topics:

* Understanding Disciplinary Literacy & Connections to the Revised Social Studies Standards

* Compare & Contrast the WI Standards for Literacy in All Subjects (DL) and the Revised WI Standards for Social Studies

* Techniques for Applying Disciplinary Literacy

Each Participant Must Bring:

* Laptop or tablet

Recommended Attendees:  Social studies teachers (elementary, middle, and high school), co-teachers, curriculum directors, principals, literacy leaders

Cost/Fee:  CESA 7 District - $65 and Non-CESA 7 District - $100.00 (Includes Lunch and Materials.)
