    Target Audience: Administrators, Teacher Leaders, and other educators who impact decisions about literacy instruction at the district and 6-12 building level for all content areas The MISD Disciplinary Literacy Leadership Group is a network for educators interested in implementing an integrated disciplinary literacy model in a 6-12 setting. Using the GELN Essential Practices for Disciplinary Literacy Instruction in the Secondary Classroom: Grades 6 to 12 as a guide, we will examine research around literacy learning in the disciplines. Participants will have time to choose a specific Essential Practice or area of disciplinary literacy they would like to explore for their own district, and network with leaders from other districts to share their findings. The goal of this group is to support educators to notice and name effective instructional practices their districts have in place, and to identify and implement the next steps to move toward increasing student literacy in all disciplines.
