LDC is a way to teach the content. It assists the teachers create engagement through helping the kids see information, read, or write like a historian, a scientist, etc. The students discover that the teachers want to teach them how to think critically and that they will ask them for their ideas about the content. This encourages the students as their opinions are valued. "They love that!"
