Content Literacy 101


I designed this site as a tool for educators to use in their own practice. With the recent push to include reading instruction in all classrooms, it has become increasingly important that non-Language Arts teachers know strategies to increase their students’ comprehension. In this resource, I have included an introduction to content literacy: what it is, why we need it, and why you haven’t tried it before. I also offer some tips on how to begin integrating this concept in your curriculum. Finally, and most importantly, I have gathered a wide variety of strategies that cover the scope of the reading process. Be sure to check out my "Further Reading" and "References Used." My hope is that you will use this source as a starting point for your own content literacy exploration. Thanks for reading!
