Content Area Language and Literacy (CALL) (6-12)
CALL Book Cover CA Common Core State Standards require an integrated, interdisciplinary model of literacy that reflects the reciprocal relationship between the language arts and content knowledge (CA ELA/ELD Framewok, 2014). The end goal is for students to independently comprehend complex texts across a range of types and disciplines in order to build strong content knowledge.
  • CALL offers middle and high school content teachers practical, research-based instructional routines that help student access and engage with a variety of complex text across content areas.
  • CALL provides teachers instructional routines that make challenging text accessible, relevant, and comprehensible to all students, including English Learners.
  • CALL promotes reading independence as students learn to systematically employ the reading comprehension routines implemented and modeled by their teachers.
