Webinar – What is Disciplinary Literacy and How Does it Impact Achievement in Secondary School?

In secondary school, each subject becomes increasingly specialized in how it communicates the purposes and values of its discipline. English prizes the use of synonyms, active voice, and figurative language; however, science prefers precise vocabulary, passive voice, and concise description of processes. Learning to navigate the differing use of language throughout a single school day can be challenging. Join us as we explore disciplinary literacy and its impact on students with dyslexia.
The Speaker is JUDY FUHRMAN. Judy is a licensed speech-language pathologist with varied therapeutic experience including rehabilitative, clinical, itinerant, and classroom settings. Currently she works as a Staff Development Specialist for reading and writing intervention in Riverside Unified School District. Her expertise is in higher order language function and its relationship to literacy. She has shared her knowledge at state, national, and international conferences and is an adjunct professor at the University of Redlands Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.
