With CCSS, literacy is to be embedded in history, social studies, science, and career technology education. 

Some useful resources are listed below. Links are also given to web sources that will be useful for history and science classes.


CCSSO ContentLiteracy.pdf   Excellent information on how literacy looks different in content areas.  Especially useful are the instructions for specific strategies and a guide to how these strategies would look in different subjects (pages 18-76).


Reading in the Disciplines.pdf Excellent resource on the Challenges of Adolescent Literacy in content-area classes.
