Disciplinary Literacy: Framing Problems and Setting Purpose, Course 2
Welcome to the second course in our series of seven Disciplinary Literacy courses. In this course, we’ll explore student centered, disciplinary literacy instruction with a focus on purpose setting and the use of problems, questions, or phenomena to drive instruction and frame the use of different literacy practices. We’ll also look at how we can tap into student’s communities, experiences, and funds of knowledge in this process. These two areas of focus correspond to Practices 1 and 9 in the Essential Practices for Disciplinary Literacy Instruction.
