Literacy in Learning Exchange - Video Clip - Content Literacy Instruction

On Teaching Content: Building a Schoolwide Culture
Nancy Frey and Doug Fisher

How can we make sure that reading, writing, speaking, and listening are part of the instructional routines in every subject area?

"Watch an 18 minute clip in which teachers across subject areas discuss the ways in which literacy instructional routines develop students' understanding about the content. They share successful approaches for engaging students with vocabulary, writing, and building background such that learning occurs. The video clip closes with a student sharing his perspective on how his attitude and experience of school have improved as a result of these approaches."
