"I can read this!" Promoting Developmentally Responsive Literacy Practices in a Middle School Science Classroom
Middle level educators in all content areas must support adolescents' literacy development. Incorporating engaging literacy practices across the curriculum provides students with opportunities to develop academic and social skills. Researchers analyzed interviews and observations of a middle school science teacher who incorporated engaging literacy practices using inductive analysis. Discussion of findings cumulates with a Framework for Developmentally Responsive Literacy Practices designed to guide educators incorporating engaging literacy practices across the curriculum.
