Disciplinary Literacy for Deeper Learning MOOC

Leave a comment

Please join me for a MOOC-Ed on Disciplinary Literacy for Deeper Learning. Register now at  

The free, 6-week course is funded by the Hewlett Foundation, the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation, and the New Literacies Collaborative at NC State University. This course will explore what it means to read, write, speak, and listen for learning and creating knowledge within a discipline. Designed specifically for teacher educators, administrators, and 6-12th grade teachers in English/ELA, Science, History/Social Studies, and Mathematics, this course is open to all educators in K-12 and postsecondary levels interested in learning more about disciplinary literacy for deeper learning. Additionally, this course provides an optional PLC Facilitation Guide to assist teams as they work through the MOOC-Ed together. 

Featured expert contributors include Tim Shanahan, P. David Pearson, Don Leu, Leigh Hall, Hiller Spires, and John Lee; doctoral students include Abbey Graham and Shea Kerkhoff (that’s me). 

It begins September 29, 2014. We hope you will share the link with interested 6th-12th grade teachers.
