Literacy in the Discipline

Although each discipline has its own unique values, conventions (format and style), and expectations that students must learn, LiteracyTA has identified high-level literacy skills like analyzing prompts, marking texts, analyzing text structure, and integrating sources to name a few that cut across all subjects and disciplines. Students who master these interdisciplinary skills will perform well in various reading and writing situations. Depending on the discipline, students may read differently, or write for different purposes and to different audiences, but they will need a common set of reading, writing, and speaking skills that they can strategically employ in any discipline.


Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
