The Graz Group Model of Pluriliteracies Teaching for Learning


Wednesday, May 18, 2016, 4:00pm to 5:00pm


RCC Seminar Room, 26 Trowbridge St., Cambridge, MA 02138

RCC is pleased to announce this talk by Ana Halbach, RCC Fellow and Visiting Scholar at the Harvard Department of Romance Languages and Literatures.

Pluriliteracies Teaching for Learning (PTL) shows teachers and materials developers ways of fostering deep learning by paying attention to the development of students‘ subject specific literacies as well as their conceptual understanding and automatization of subject-specific procedures, skills and strategies. By communicating about their evolving understanding in increasingly sophisticated ways, students internalize these understandings and ways of acting and thinking. PTL not only makes the links between content and language learning visible, but it also shows how teachers can create learning trajectories taking students’ current abilities as a starting point, and tracing their progress along the learning pathway. This talk will present this promising approach.
