FCPS secondary interdisciplinary literacy teams have spent two years exploring the unique literacy qualities of each discipline. While on this journey teams have learned valuable strategies and protocols to engage students in critical thinking and shift to a student-centered classroom.  During the 2018-2019 school year, sixty-one school-based literacy teams are exploring writing to learn and writing in the form of the disciplines to deepen student content knowledge. Although the language arts office has taken the lead in facilitating literacy learning, we have watched teachers of all disciplines grow to understand the value reading and writing. The session will offer participants an opportunity to engage in disciplinary reading and writing in a workshop model. Participants will leave with materials to engage their colleagues in discussions about disciplinary literacy and strategies to engage students in their classes.
