The Content Literacy Continuum

The Content Literacy Continuum

CLC Overview


The Strategic Instruction Model (SIM) Content Literacy Continuum (CLC) focuses on helping secondary schools develop and sustain comprehensive and integrated literacy programs. This school improvement process is led by a SIM Implementation Team with extensive experience in secondary literacy. The team works with administrators, teachers, and staff to develop and implement a standards-based plan to improve literacy and content area learning tied to student performance on state assessments.

SIM consists of a variety of research-based interventions. Some of these interventions focus on helping teachers think about, adapt, and present critical content in a “learner-friendly” fashion. Some interventions focus on helping students learn the skills and strategies students need to learn content.
