What is Disciplinary Literacy? AND Why is It Important?
Disciplinary literacy pushes students to move beyond reading, writing, listening, and viewing, solely for academic purposes. There is a fundamental difference between content literacy and disciplinary literacy. Content literacy focuses on study skills that are utilized to help students learn from subject-specific texts while disciplinary literacy, by contrast, emphasizes the knowledge and abilities possessed by those who create, communicate, and use the disciplines and references the 'shared ways' of reading, writing, thinking and reasoning within all academic fields which is a shared responsibility among ALL of us as educators. Check out this great series if you want to gain key expertise in regard to the benefits of Disciplinary Literacy!
