    and practical role in addressing the variety of requirements associated with Adolescent Literacy including the encouragement of critical thinking skills and metacognition that are essential in ensuring that young people are equipped with the skills they will need to pursue further education obtain meaningful employment and engage in the benefits of lifelong learning Hargreaves 2004 points out that learning how to learn is a gateway to enhanced achievement and to the independence in learning that is a crucial developmental skill for students during the secondary years Simply metacognition is thinking about thinking When students are metacognitive they have an understanding of learning in three areas they understand themselves as learners they understand a given task and they understand a variety of strategies and how to use them in a variety of situations Jetton Dole 2004 Research on metacognition particularly in Literacy and Maths Paris Wasik Turner 1991 Schoenfeld 1992 Marzano 2000 makes the case that instruction and support in the control and regulation of thinking processes can have a strong impact on achievement and Adolescent Literacy research Kamil et al 2008 on reading ability points out that it is a key predictor of achievement in Maths and Science Adolescents often need more sophisticated and specific kinds of literacy support for reading the content areas or academic disciplines Lee Spratley 2010 Literacy researchers are increasingly addressing the specific demands of academic disciplines within the post primary curriculum as adolescents often need more sophisticated and specific kinds of literacy support for reading in subject areas or academic disciplines They argue that each subject area presupposes specific kinds of background knowledge about how to read texts in that area and often requires a particular type of reading Gutherie et al 2004 Schoenbach et al 1999 Shanahan Shanahan 2008 Yore et al 2003 Moje et al 2008 Lee Spratley 2010 For example the demands of comprehending scientific text include not only an understanding of cause and effect and sequencing but also additional skills based on scientific reasoning and the ability to evaluate scientific arguments The driving idea behind disciplinary literacy is that knowledge and thinking must go hand in hand and for students to develop literacy in a particular discipline they must grow in these two dimensions simultaneously Therefore reading and learning in each subject area requires a variety of thinking tools that direct students to engage in discipline specific reading strategies As students advance through school they encounter increasing amounts of text technical vocabulary disciplinary discourses and demands for sophisticated text processing These high level reading skills require knowledge of how disciplinary ideas are communicated and how texts in each discipline are constructed NBSS Level 1 school wide academic literacy support aims to provide schools with research validated practices in reading vocabulary writing and oral communication skills as well as thinking learning and study skills development Embedding practices to acquire these skills into all subject areas not only facilitates deep learning and understanding of subject content but also enables students to become effective
