Chapter 4 Log 4

Chapter 4 in Disciplinary Literacy talks about the inquiry within each of the disciplines. There are four disciplines that this chapter talks about, ELA, science, mathematics, and social studies. For ELA students learn to ask questions of the author and each other as they seek to uncover meaning in fiction or bias in nonfiction, Science could look like making observations or using curiosity and background knowledge to define questions. For Mathematics it could be finding connections between graphs, charts, and other texts through mathematical principles and applications, lastly, social studies could look like asking students important questions about the text that they read. All of these play a big role in how we teach our students and how they learn as well.
