Help students access content in ways that foster understanding and critical thinking in science!
Science literacy enables students to learn, reflect, and communicate about science throughout their lives.

Written by a science educator and a literacy expert, this resource shows how to:
- Build students’ background knowledge and vocabulary
- Develop students’ science reading skills while they access content
- Use writing frames, graphic organizers, writing-to-learn, and a writing protocol
- Improve instruction and target specific needs through formative assessment
