In this "hands on" session, participants will learn how to integrate literacy with content-area subjects. Although the strategies and activities presented are taken from a social studies classroom, the presenters will provide examples of how to adapt the strategies and activities to fit all content areas in grades K-12. Participants will learn how to deepen students’ understanding of the content, whether the strategies are implemented in the English classroom or content area class. In addition to understanding why it is essential to incorporate reading and writing in the content-area classrooms, participants will engage in a variety of activities that they can implement immediately in their classrooms. For each strategy presented, participants will learn how each strategy impacts student learning and then participate in the activities themselves.
