If you’ve ever believed you don’t have time to teach much science—or feared you don’t know how to integrate it with all-important language arts lessons—this is the book that will change your thinking. The message: It isn’t just possible to incorporate science into language arts. It also makes a lot of sense.

Linking Science and Literacy in the K–8 Classroom is divided into two kinds of convincing content:

  • Sixteen chapters written by prominent researchers and professional development experts make the connection between science and literacy from the perspective of the classroom, district administrators, and the research community.
  • Nine accompanying “case stories” show how teachers actually made the connections in K–8 classrooms. These anecdotal accounts are engaging and frank, making it clear that there are lessons to be learned even from failed attempts.

Based on a 2004 conference sponsored by the National Science Teachers Association and funded by the National Science Foundation, this book is a source of instruction and inspiration for K–8 teachers, science and literacy supervisors, school administrators, and professional development providers.
