Webinar: Supporting Literacy and Content-Area Learning

Literacy in the Disciplines, 6-12 (LiD) is pleased to announce our next after-school Webinar Series session.

But I Want to Teach What I’m Really Teaching: Supporting Literacy and Content-Area Learning

This webinar will include activities and discussions intended to help educators understand some of the ways that literacy differs across disciplines. The focus of the session is to encourage teachers to support literacy while helping students meet content-specific learning goals. Being aware of our own use of literacy strategies opens up discussions of how to continuously enrich every lesson, every day with content-area and disciplinary literacy practices.  

When: Thursday, May 12, 2022, 6:00 – 7:00 pm ET.

Cost: Free. LiD6-12 is funded by the South Carolina Middle Grades Initiative.

The recording of this webinar is embedded below. The slide deck is available beneath the video.

This session will feature Dr. Britnie D. Kane and Charlene Aldrich.
