If Rosa Parks Could Text: Content Area Writing in the Literacy Block

29,566 views

Published on

These are the slides I created for my session at the North Carolina Reading Conference, held in Raleigh, North Carolina, March 15-17, 2015. The essence of this presentation is about the necessary Intermediate Literacy writing skills necessary as students are "learning to write" and learning the content at the same time. Disciplinary literacy may be a bit of stretch for elementary but we can begin teaching students how to read and write like a historian, how to read and write like a scientist, and how to read and write like a mathematician. #ncra15 Accompanying handouts are on my Slideshare page, too. #presentationzen #contentareawriting #writingaboutreading #disciplinaryliteracy #writingtolearn I am happy to come and deliver this enthusiastic and energetic professional development session to your school or district. Gmail me for rates and other PD offerings at helloliteracy.

  49. “After deciding on a specific genre in which to write, teachers should seek out strong examples of the very writing their students will soon be doing. This can be the most challenging part as it takes time to locate and identify strong pieces to use. However, these texts are a vital piece to the teaching process because much of the teaching about how to craft these kinds of texts will come from these examples.” (Pytash & Morgan, 2014) ^ 2015, Hello Literacy
