In response to the call for increased literacy and more equitable learning opportunities across the state of Michigan, the 6-12 Disciplinary Literacy Task Force formed. The group’s first charge was to revise and publish the Essential Practices for Disciplinary Literacy Instruction in the Secondary Classroom: Grades 6 to 12, based on the work of lead researchers from the University of Michigan, Drs. Elizabeth Moje and Darin Stockdill. During the 2019-2020 school year, education consultants and educators from around Michigan participated in the Regional One-Day Institute, which served as an introduction to the Essential Practices for Disciplinary Literacy Instruction in the Secondary Classroom. To keep the conversation (and learning) moving forward among secondary English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Career Tech, Visual/Performing Arts, and World Languages teachers, the Disciplinary Literacy Task Force is excited to offer the Deeper Dive Institute during the 2020-2021 school year.
