Archive: Teacher Tip Tuesday: Elevating Science Learning through Read Alouds! January 25, 2022

Using picture books to support standards-based science lessons is critical for science learning in the elementary school -- and a fun and engaging way to connect with students. Choosing books that align with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and knowing when in a unit to use these books, is a key skill. During the web seminar, we will walk you through our process for choosing aligned books, and model how we use picture books to support science learning at the elementary levels.  Join us as we work together to deepen meaningful science learning through high-quality literacy that supports anchoring phenomena and real-world connections.

All individuals receive a certificate of participation and 100 NSTA activity points for attending the live seminar and completing the end-of-program survey. A certificate of participation is not awarded for watching the recorded version of the program.

We invite you to register for upcoming web seminars at NSTA.

Below are comments from individuals who attended the seminar:

  • "I am a junior at Tennessee Tech University and I am approaching my first science practicum. I took some really good notes tonight and I am excited to put all of these ideas into practice."
  • "I really enjoyed the presenters. They were very engaging making the content interesting and fun to learn more about."
  • "This seminar was great! Even though the material was geared towards teachers of younger students, I still gained many valuable strategies to use with my high school students."
