Embedding Literacy Strategies into Content Instruction
Literacy support strategies need to be appropriately used to support content learning. Using the lesson planning process known as “Backward Design” (Wiggins & McTighe, 1998) is a very effective way to align literacy strategies meaningfully with content so they support the content learning purpose and do not become just another “worksheet” activity.
There are three stages in the backward design process:
Identify desired results- What enduring understandings are desired?
Determine acceptable evidence- How will you know students have achieved the desired results?
Plan Learning experience and instruction- What will the lesson include?
