Investigate using inquiry-based learning and the SEPs to
deepen students’ understanding of both science concepts and literacy strategies
remotely or in the classroom.
Participants will: 1. l
eave with a toolkit of hands-on, inquiry science investigations inspired and enhanced by literature; 2. l
earn about distance-learning tools that support integrating the Science and Engineering Practices with literacy strategies to engage students in real-world science; and 3. identify strategies and resources for using books, productive talk, and science writing to integrate science, literacy, and discussion in ways that foster critical thinking, academic language, and meaning making.
