Topic: Teaching Literacy Across the Curriculum

Ten-second review: Charting teacher growth in understanding of interdisciplinary studies. Article contains questions asked by pre-service and inservice teachers about literacy across the curriculum—at the beginning of class, during the class and at the end of the class.

Comment: I would anchor my approach to literacy across the curriculum in the directed reading assignment, writing to learn, the essay exam and research paper, activities that would fit comfortably with what content teachers already do. For excellent descriptions of each of these activities, see the Internet.
