  3. 3. Disciplinary Literacies Multiliteracies Academic Literacy
  4. 4. • Academic Literacy—Consists of print-based literacy skills, specific to academic contexts (e.g., summary, paraphrase, definition, comparison). The goal is basic proficiency with reading and writing. The pedagogical focus is on generalizable literacy strategies (e.g., KWL charts, questioning strategies, writing to learn). • Multiliteracies—Includes an expansive notion of literacy (e.g., New Literacies, multiple sign systems, multiple modalities, broadened definition of text beyond print, adolescents’ out-of-school literacy practices, popular media, critical literacy). The goal is recognizing the diversity of meaning-making processes and social, cultural, and intellectual equity. The pedagogical focus is on dexterity with multiple forms of literacy and transmediation. • Disciplinary Literacies—content-specific print and non-print expectations and applications of literacy (e.g., marshaling evidence, forming an argument, logic, sourcing, text structure). The goal is to recognize and control conventions of disciplinary thought and language. The pedagogical focus is on distinct literacy strategies that are suitable for specific content areas.
  5. 5. Most states require teacher preparation programs to focus on academic literacies. The field of literacy research, however, views multiliteracies and disciplinary literacies as important and more sophisticated levels of understanding about content area literacy. Please read the supplemental article “Policy, Pedagogy, and Research: Three Issues Affecting Content Area Literacy Courses for Secondary-Level Teacher Candidates” to get a better understanding of these levels of content area literacy instruction.
