Thank you for exploring Sharing Books, Talking Science

Sharing Books Talking Science


Science is everywhere, in everything we do, see, and read. Children’s literature is a natural avenue to explore the seven crosscutting concepts described in the Next Generation Science Standards* In Sharing Books, Talking Science, Valerie Bang-Jensen and Mark Lubkowitz help you learn to develop the mindset necessary to think like a scientist, and then help your students think, talk, and read like scientists. You will discover how to use just about any book in your classroom to explore scientific concepts and infuse your curriculum with scientific thinking…even when you aren’t teaching science.
