With examples from science classrooms, Cynthia Greenleaf explains key Reading Apprenticeship approaches that amplify the reciprocal nature of science and literacy instruction as exercises in inquiry. When literacy is properly understood as an investigation to construct meaning with and from texts, science texts, then—with their conceptual and linguistic complexity and multiple representations of ideas—graphs, diagrams, data sets, and so forth are perfect for stimulating authentic inquiry into the meaning of the ideas being presented.
