Please upload your example in the appropriate place below. Be sure that you do not identify students by name and that you have secured appropriate permission for any student images or video clips that are included with your submission. Please provide a description, including specific discipline standards that you are illustrating in your example.

Interested in finding out more? Please check out the NCDPI online learning modules:
Part I: Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects
This introductory module defines literacy in the disciplines. Learners will receive an overview of the connections between the North Carolina Essential Standards and the Common Core State Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects. They will then have guided practice examining, discussing, and creating learning activities for their students that integrate the North Carolina Essential Standards and the Common Core Literacy Standards for disciplines in grades 6–12. This module should take approximately 3 hours to complete.

Part II: Disciplinary Literacy
(Includes an arts-specific section to help arts teachers in Grades 6-12 to connect with the CCR Literacy Standards)

Also, check out the NCDPI arts education wikispace page for Standards in ELA and Literacy and Mathematics resources (Arts and CCR) and RESA 2013 training materials, which focused on Literacy in the Arts, including Arts and the CCR connections (RESA 2013).
