First Grade Overview
P.S. 207 Content Literacy & Math
At P.S. 207, we believe that our students need to develop what we refer to as advanced literacies in order to be academically and personally successful in today’s literacy and knowledge-based society. Advanced literacies refers to the skills and competencies that enable communication, spoken and written, in increasingly diverse ways and with increasingly diverse audiences. Our content-based units of study and lessons embed the Hallmarks of Advanced Literacy, as well as the Next Generation Standards which provide the foundation for the acquisition of new content through general literacy skills, content-specific literacy skills (such as map reading in the social studies,) and prior knowledge of content. These experiences are scaffolded in the early grades with a focus on Learning to Read and Write to prepare our students for Reading and Writing to Learn, preparing our student. Likewise, they make way for participation in academic, civic, and professional communities, where knowledge is shared and generated.Sources: http://www.nysed.gov/common/nysed/files/nov-8-nys_brief-1-of-8_summer_2017_adv_lit_final_2.pdf-a.pdf , http://contentliteracy101.weebly.com/what-is-content-literacy.htm
