Thanks for your interest in The Stories of Science

Make science more engaging and improve your students' literacy skills at the same time.

In this sample from The Stories of Science, you'll be introduced to the power of story in science. Authors Janet MacNeil, Mark Goldner, and Melissa London lay a foundation for integrating literacy into science through story.

You'll read about: 

  • why stories should be part of every science classroom
  • three types of science stories: explanations, informational stories, and personal stories
  • how integrating science stories into your instruction deepens student learning.

Science stories are explored in greater depth in the rest of the book. Specific strategies and lesson ideas for each type of science story are shared. You'll also learn how story can unify a unit or even an entire year of study.
