Science literacy enables students to learn, reflect, and communicate about science throughout their lives. This book provides an approach for building secondary students’ disciplinary literacy and guiding students as they read science texts and produce their own writing. 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
