Reading Writing Science: Implementing an Integrated Curriculum

This course provides support for educators as they implement a dynamic science program that blends discussions of current theoretical concepts with hands-on science activities. The focus is on integrating developmentally-appropriate literacy activities within content curriculum frameworks. At the elementary level, work includes development and/or enrichment of thematic science units across the curriculum. At the secondary level, there is a focus on scaffolding academic literacy activities (such as lab reports, observation notebooks, and science journals) as tools for deepening the learning of science concepts. Throughout the course, teachers explore and problem-solve issues of practice that arise from their implementations.
