The first weekend of this class we started off examining what NYS identifies as essential ELA standards for reading/writing/listening/speaking K-12. Since then we’ve built bridges by implementing literacy strategies into the content areas to strengthen student learning and understanding. Learning to effectively use literacy strategies in the content areas is challenging in itself for new teachers. Now think about the larger picture of 21st century literacies. Click here to read what The National Council of Teachers of English writes on the subject. To further examine the changing view of literacy, go to the K12 Online Conference site and watch the presentation by Clarence Fisher entitled, “Globally Literate” and read the comments about the presentation.
How have these or other sources further changed and/or challenged your thinking about 21st century literacy?
