6-12 Disciplinary Literacy Series - Day 1: Problem-based Disciplinary Literacy Instruction

October 29, 2019 - 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM

Event Description

Target Audience: Grades 6-12 ELA Teachers  

Problem-based units of instruction present authentic problems to help engage students in the learning process. Staff members are highly encouraged to attend in cross-disciplinary teams representing English, science, social studies/history and math, as well as administrators and support staff. The training begins with the whole group learning together about the theory and components of problem-based instruction. Next, participants will break into discipline-specific groups for content-focused learning facilitated by ISD consultants. The last hour of the session will include time to meet as school teams to process the day’s learning and plan next steps. 
Participants will leave with a general understanding of...
  • what problem-based instruction looks like
  • establishing engaging purposes for students to read, write, and communicate
  • guiding students to ask questions and plan inquiries
  • helping students see connections in their lives by engaging in real-world and issue-based investigations
  • creating opportunities for students to enact literate identities connected to their learning across disciplines
