Summary:
The purpose of this poster will be to share findings of how a university literacy festival supports disciplinary literacy for Title I elementary school students. This qualitative case study focused on how a university literacy festival can support and deliver disciplinary literacy instruction for Title I elementary school teachers and students. The objectives will be to a) present a brief overview of disciplinary literacy at the elementary level; b) provide a rich description of two Title I classrooms and the implementation of disciplinary literacy before, during, and after a university literacy festival; and c) engage participants in discussion over common themes (definition of disciplinary literacy at the elementary level, importance of disciplinary literacy in elementary schools, and how a university literacy festival can support elementary teachers to infuse aspects of disciplinary literacy into elementary instruction) revealed upon reviewing feedback reflections from Title I school teachers and students.
