Many educators believe that the only purpose of content area literacy is to provide students with a means by which they acquire information from textbooks (Shanahan & Shanahan, 2012). However, there are several content areas such as physical education, mathematics, art, and music that may not use traditional text. Teachers of these subjects need to know about literacy strategies, such as anticipation guides, group retellings, read alouds, graphic organizers, and journal writing, that can be effectively integrated into these courses that will allow students to listen, speak, read, and write in order to acquire information.
As a result of attending this session, participants will:
-Know what it means to integrate literacy into the content areas.Recognize that literacy is a critical component in all content areas, even in those that use nontraditional text.
-Be able to integrate strategies such as think alouds, poetry, and graphic organizers into content areas that use nontraditional text
