ABSTRACT
The article discusses the use of content literacy kits in increasing adolescent literacy and learning. Content literacy kits provide opportunities to increase adolescent literacy because they offer students a variety of high interest text and resources evolving on a theme or topic of study. In creating a literacy kit, the first step is to identify a theme, then gather a variety of text, develop literacy strategies, gather artifacts and resources, and lastly, place the texts, resources, and strategies in a theme-related container.
