In addition to the Guiding Principles for Teaching and Learning, there are several foundational statements about disciplinary literacy that inform teaching and learning in Wisconsin. To read more about each principle, click on the foundations below.
WISCONSIN'S FOUNDATIONS FOR DISCIPLINARY LITERACY
- Academic learning begins in early childhood and develops across all disciplines.
- Content knowledge is strengthened when educators integrate discipline-specific literacy into teaching and learning.
- The literacy skills of reading, writing, listening, speaking and critical thinking improve when content-rich learning experiences motivate and engage students.
- Students demonstrate their content knowledge through reading, writing, listening, and speaking as part of a content-literate community.
Resources to Support each Discipline:
These links will take you to a Google website for the subject area chosen, written by the DPI consultant for that area with significant assistance and support from subject-area educators in the field. They are meant to be resources for educators, but also interactive; teachers can (and are encouraged to) comment, upload, and network about disciplinary literacy in their discipline.
