Wednesday, April 21 • 4:00 PM - 4:45 PM

STRAND: Integrating Science and Literacy

Show Details

Sponsoring Company: NSTA Press

Learn about Argument-Driven Inquiry and how it can help students engage in real-world science while using literacy-based materials in the service of sensemaking.

TAKEAWAYS:
In this session, participants will: 1. how to use this instructional model, or way of teaching, to give students an opportunity to learn how to use the core ideas, crosscutting concepts, and practices of science to make sense of natural phenomena; 2. how to give students an opportunity to talk, read, and write in the service of sensemaking in science; and 3. ways to support students as they engage in real-world science while using literacy-based materials in the service of sensemaking.

TAKEAWAYS:
1. Attendees will learn about ways to integrate science and literacy learning; 2. From these examples, attendees will learn about different perspectives on what it means to integrate science and literacy learning; and 3. Attendees also will learn about ways to integrate science and literacy lessons while enacting NGSS recommendations such as engaging students in the science and engineering practices of asking questions and defining problems, constructing explanations and designing solutions, engaging in argument from evidence, and obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information within the context of using relevant cross cutting concepts while exploring phenomena on which to base development of disciplinary core ideas.
