High-Quality Early Childhood Assessment: Learning From States’ Use of Kindergarten Entry Assessments
This literacy leadership brief from the International Literacy Association provides an overview of both content-area and disciplinary literacy practices, comparing the “umbrella terms” that define two different instructional approaches found within various subject areas or disciplines of study. The brief highlights the benefits of combining these frameworks to maximize student literacy outcomes and includes examples and strategies for practical application in classroom instruction. Multiple content areas are addressed in a table display which identifies the target audience (middle or high school) and a list of disciplines, paired with anchor activities and supporting texts, as well as additional examples of embedded content-area and disciplinary literacy instruction.
