Chapter 3 Resources

Chapter 3 compels us to view individual subjects, topics, or standards as part of a larger discipline of study—or a way of making sense of our complex world. Disciplinary literacy is a powerful way to think about how each subject area helps us to understand, communicate, and take knowledgeable action. This chapter will inspire you to use standards in a nonstandardized way, embrace the power of concepts in your classroom, and to articulate the big picture of your course that will facilitate learning that transfers. We cover several reflection protocols and considerations for articulating the most essential elements of each course that empower students to transfer their learning to new situations.
