Supporting reading across school subjects with meaningful metalanguage

Abstract: Supporting reading across school subjects with meaningful metalanguage

I will show how our design-based research process has helped us support teachers in focusing students’ attention on the ways language works to present meanings important for different disciplinary contexts. I will report on the ways we connected the grammatical metalanguage of systemic functional linguistics with disciplinary metalanguage already being used in classrooms, and on how students took up the metalanguage in ways that supported them in reading complex texts across school subjects.
