ABSTRACT
The call for teaching literacy in the disciplines raises questions about what characterises instruction that fosters facility with language in particular domains. One might suggest that using reading, writing, talking, and thinking to learn and learning to read, write, talk, and think are always at the intersection of developing expertise in any subject. This article presents five fundamental principles for understanding disciplinary literacy, considers some challenges that educators face, and then provides suggestions for supporting students as they learn to use reading, writing, talking and thinking in the pursuit of acquiring disciplinary knowledge.
