What can science teachers do to help middle school and high school students understand their textbooks and learn to write, read, and think as scientists, mathematicians, and engineers?
During this featured presentation, Dr. Greenleaf presented examples of evidence-based teaching routines and videos of science classrooms that illustrate how reframing reading as an investigation can help students gain solid science and literacy practices. If you are looking to improve science teaching and help your school or district meet ESSA’s evidence-based standards for professional learning, check out the presentation slides or contact us!
Presentation Title: Reframing Reading as an Inquiry Practice of Science
Date & Time: Thursday, March 15th, 3:30 – 4:30 pm
Location: Georgia World Congress Center, B309
Also be sure to check out the video, “Grade 7 Life Science” which was featured in Dr. Greenleaf’s presentation, and features a Reading Apprenticeship-trained science teacher model her reading processes on a science text, spotlighting the questioning for her students. The students then take up reading, posing questions, and sharing them with each other and with the class.
