Integrating Literacy in the Middle School Classroom

Show Details

Are you interested in how to integrate literacy and science? Join this team of educators as they share strategies and resources for using science-focused texts in the secondary classroom. Read Alouds: Developing Literacy and Thinking Skills in Science Read-alouds are a valuable strategy for introducing nonfiction text, articles, and current events to students that can also promote deeper understanding, higher-level thinking, and increased engagement. Learn how to prepare and implement read-alouds in your science class. Planning and Implementing a Whole School Book Read in an Urban High School I will share my experiences with 5 years in a row of planning and implementing a whole school book read at my urban high school. Each book had a health science focus and was read, at least in part, in every classroom, in every content area. This culminated with a whole school exhibition. The Martian in the Physical Science Classroom Incorporating science literacy into the curriculum can be seamless when using the right novel. The Martian by Andy Weir provides an ideal launchpad to bring real-world science "faction" enrichment to your classroom.

Flippity: A go to versatile tool to increase engagement
Flippity can "easily turn Google™ spreadsheets into flashcards and other cool stuff." This session will highlight three go to interactives to increase student engagement with one another and with content. Consider bringing a device to practice creating one or two of these cool things. Hacking the Secret Garden with 3D eLearning Experiences Elementary preservice teachers and students hack the science of school gardens and digitally present details of garden-based phenomena that meets NGSS 3D learning.
