Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development,
Pub. Date:
Checked out the college board scores of schools in your neighborhood lately? Chances are you will be unpleasantly surprised, unless you have previously checked out the ways in which literacy has been short-changed in current curriculum. Here those in a position to influence curriculum learn about ways to take literacy, including reading, writing, speaking and critical thinking skills from lip-service status to the core of all curriculum. The authors, all academics with specialties in aspects of literacy, advocate integrating literacy actively so students who excel benefit as much as those who struggle. They describe how to build a school-wide action plan, support teachers, use data to make decisions about teaching and learning, build leadership capacity and allocate resources to support literacy.
