Webinar Series: Disciplinary Literacy for Deeper Learning
Webinar Session April 5th

This webinar builds upon our growing knowledge of how a disciplinary literacy approach in the classroom can have a positive impact on student learning. It will offer participants the chance to learn from the current research, and to explore and discuss with other educators what a disciplinary literacy approach looks like, and some of the instructional strategies they can use to help their students become insiders into disciplinary thinking and discourse.

This is the fifth in a series of research synopses that documents the impact of collective efficacy, and the strong link between teacher efficacy and student achievement. This research synopsis shows that collective efficacy had the strongest independent effect on achievement than any other variable in the study.

ALERT: Make Room for Supporting Understanding of Graphic Text
Although graphic texts, such as infographics, may at first appear relatively accessible, effective readers need support to understand the way visual and print language works to convey meaning. This new ALERT helps teachers support adolescent readers to derive meaning, both explicit and implicit, from the graphic texts they encounter.
