_Disciplinary Literacy_
Disciplinary Literacy can be defined as being literate in the language of the discipline. It is the way a person gathers information or communicates information about a specific topic, and through multiple means of communicating. It is how we make meaning using various texts that convey content.
If you are an auto mechanic, your disciplinary language might include the sounds a car makes, the performance of the car, and the computer printout of the on-board diagnostics. In that scenario, the mechanic must be fluent with many different kinds of "text".

These resources can help students access the language of the discipline being taught.
