Speaking, reading & writing in Science

December 13, 2016 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

The November issue of Science & Children (NSTA) is a theme issue on the connections between speaking reading and writing. Some of the articles include:

  • Read all about it: Exploring multiple genres of writing ensures students get a fuller picture of science (pp 32- 39, K. Adams and K. Phillips);
  • Dissecting student dialogue: Speaking and listening, in the form of collaborative conversation, enhances the depth of students’ science  knowledge (pp 40-45, A. Stanford and J. Henderson);
  • Learning Science in a Second Language: Incorporating science notebooks into a fifth-grade language immersion program accentuate the leaning in both science and writing (pp 47- 51, B. Lindquist and C. Loynachan)
  • Supporting academic langue: Simple strategies can encourage the use of scientific vocabulary, language and discussion (pp 52-57, L. Kelly);
  • Put your walls to work: Planning and using interactive word walls to support science and reading instruction (pp 78-84, J.Jackson and A. Durham)
