Literacy Strategies


Literacy Committee Vision and Definition


Every educator commits to the explicit teaching of disciplinary literacy skills to develop critical thinkers who are college and career ready.


Definition of Literacy

Disciplinary Literacy is the merging of content knowledge with the ability to read, write, listen, speak in order to problem solve, think critically, and perform effectively in ways that are meaningful and relevant to each discipline. (Adapted from Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, 2012)
