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.


Participants will:

  • Learn the definition of disciplinary literacy and how it differs from “reading in the content area”,
  • Explain Wisconsin’s definition of “text”,
  • Compare and contrast the WI Standards for Literacy in All Subjects (DL) and the revised WI Standards for Social Studies,
  • Brainstorm ways these definitions apply to social studies teaching and learning,
  • Understand the value of authentic analysis of primary sources, sourcing, and point of view thinking as part of the social studies inquiry cycle that supports quality literacy instruction,
  • Explore resources from trusted partners such as the Library of Congress, National Archives, and Stanford History Education Group.




Cost: $100 per person (includes lunch and materials)
