Structured to support cross disciplinary learning communities
Based on the NCTE Principles of Effective Professional Development and the NCTE Principles of Adolescent Literacy Reform, Pathways for Advancing Adolescent Literacy is organized around four key questions to maximize the teaching and learning practices across the academic content areas:
- How Can I Structure My Classroom to Increase Student Responsibility and Independence? Take a sneak peek!
- How can I support my students as readers and writers while teaching challenging content?
- What role should formal and informal assessment play in content area literacy and learning?
- What does it mean to be literate in the 21st century and what are the implications for our teaching and student learning?
