Literacy for ALL Content Areas


´╗┐Embedding Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening into Every Classroom

October 1, 2021


Indian Capital Tech Center

Brackeen Center

(Business and Industry Building)

2403 N 41st Street E

Muskogee, Ok 74403


Teachers will review the Oklahoma Academic Standards with a focus on integrating literacy across the curriculum. 

Teachers will learn strategies on how to embed literacy (reading, writing, speaking, and listening) into all content areas. The focus on disciplinary literacy considers how secondary content teachers: 

1) read texts from all content areas, 

2) use comprehension strategies, 

3) teach those strategies to adolescents

Specific focus will be on reading and writing skills needed for testing, such as: analyzing, evaluating, and developing perspectives, building arguments, supporting ideas with examples, strengthening organization, and editing for clarity.
