Webinar: What is Disciplinary Literacy and How Does it Impact Achievement in Secondary School
January 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
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.
