Abstract:Despite the emphasis in recent reading research on comprehension strategies, applications, and interpretations, a focus on reading often leads to highlighting reading as a set of skills rather than as a tool for inquiry in all disciplines. Because of this, many reading teachers and researchers are asking how to move from a skills model to a literacy across the curriculum model. In this report we explore that question, first by looking briefly at some approaches to literacy across the curriculum and the resistance to these approaches that is often encountered. We consider three underlying theoretical models for literacy across the curriculum: the Skills Model, the Instrumental Model, and the Inquiry Model. In the process of this examination we take a detailed look at one classroom's approach to literacy across the curriculum to illustrate the Inquiry Model.
