Reading should not be limited to English courses. Leave
with strategies on how to motivate students to explore science through
scientific novels. Review three years of qualitative data on how novels
increased literacy, scientific fluency, scientific connectivity, and
college preparation in a marine biology course.
Teahers will: 1. learn how to use articles to make their content more applicable to the lives of the students; 2. receive strategies on how to get students to read more scientific articles; and 3. receive resources on selecting grade-appropriate scientific articles.
