当代的语言素养试图包括创造性的教学方法。例如，在过去，内容素养通常包括学生学习新词汇的活动。在目前的教学中，学生将会被激发去学习词汇的层次结构，在这个层次上，他们可以根据主题、同义词、反义词等相互之间的关系来组织词汇。将利用视觉、口头和文本辅助手段的混合来教育儿童(Kirkland and Patterson, 2005;Peterson， & McCabe, 1994)。
Language literacy in current times attempts to include creative ways of teaching the student. For instance, in the past, content literacy used to include activities for students to learn new vocabulary. In the present, student would be motivated to work on hierarchy of vocabularies where they could organize them by relation with one another such as a theme, synonymy, antonym, etc. Visual aids might also be made use of in teaching the child. A mix of visual, oral and textual aids would be made use of for teaching the child (Kirkland and Patterson, 2005; Peterson, & McCabe, 1994).
Educational Context: The educational context is teaching 9-10-year-old children. The children are taught about gardening with text and visual aids. A passage on gardening is used, along with visual aids to help understand the passage.
Rationale of Topic: The topic is selected as children would be able to interconnect better with a topic from their own homes. Gardening is a more navigable topic and even children without gardening practices would be able to come up with a picture in their mind that would help them understand the passage.
