content area vs disciplinary literacies

Page history last edited by Candance Doerr-Stevens 7 years, 6 months ago

I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear.                              -- Joan Didion 


Meaning is not what you start with, but what you end with.


                                                                               -- Peter Elbow, author of Writing Without Teachers


Adolescents entering the adult world in the 21st century will read and write more than at any other time in human history. They will need advanced levels of literacy to perform their jobs, run their households, act as citizens, and conduct their personal lives.
