The ASCD Literacy, Language, and Literature Professional Interest Community serves as a resource for professionals interested and concerned with language arts instruction in all content subjects. PIC members share information, strategies and resources that facilitate the teaching of reading in literature and content areas. The Common Core Standards serves as a benchmark for initiating the skills but does not limit the broad array of topics that can be taught through literacy. Our community recognizes that reading, writing, listening, speaking and visual literacy skills build students’ thinking and ability to effectively ask questions about the learning process and the world that surrounds them.
