The Essentials of Science and Literacy: A Guide for Teachers

Full Description: 

This highly readable and insightful book lays out the natural fit between inquiry science and balanced literacy instruction. It contains three straightforward sections: (a) Essentials, from the nature of scientific inquiry to the importance of teacher questions; (b) Talk, from creating a culture of talk to gathering ideas and making meaning; and (c) Writing, from the anatomy of a science notebook to their implementation and to writing beyond the notebook. An included study guide makes the Essentials of Science and Literacy ideal for book study with professional learning communities or pre-service teachers.
