Reading Science


“We need both literacy and science skills to create scientists in our classrooms and to prepare our students for the future challenges they will meet.”
—Jennifer Altieri

Read a sample from Reading Science by Jennifer Altieri. In it, Jennifer talks about the links between literacy and science and how these links help address challenges many teachers face in the science classroom. Some of the challenges addressed in this sample include:

  • trying to teach more science in less time, particularly in elementary schools
  • helping students become critical consumers of the vast amounts of scientific information available to them
  • supporting students with limited science backgrounds in making sense of challenging scientific vocabulary.
