"Kids love hands-on science. Yet too few grow up to be scientists. Kidsneed to be reading, writing and thinking about science as well as doing it.Writing in Science in Action propels us full throttle into both hands-onand "minds on" science. Rupp Fulwiler show us how to help kids wrap theirminds around science, do science and have a blast in the process. If wereally want to prepare kids for an increasingly unpredictable future, weneed teachers to read this book and share the practices with the buddingyoung scientists in their rooms."-Stephanie Harvey, author of The Comprehension ToolkitWriting in Science in Action, the highly anticipated follow-up resource to Betsy Rupp Fulwiler'slandmark book Writing in Science(Heinemann 2007), offers all new field-tested materials, including 10 video episodes that show teachers as they implement her approach in real classrooms with real children. The Writing in Science in ActionDVD brings the content to life by providing clear and explicit models of students talking and writing, and teachers providing the scaffolding, modeling, and conferring needed to support those students.You'll see teachers working in diverse settings with a range of learners, including ELLs, students with special needs, and reluctant writers. You'll also see groups of teachers assessing student notebooks and planning instruction based on their assessments.Focusing on science topics that are accessible and familiar, Fulwiler uses carefully interconnected video episodes, student work, and detailed classroom vignettes to take the reader into the complexity of individual classrooms and the practices of skilled teachers. Seeing her approach in action is a powerful teaching tool, and the DVD, used in combination with the practical text, takes Writing in Scienceto a whole new level. Seeing really isbelieving.Writing in Science in Actionprovides clear guidance and structures for classroom practice, with:* specific strategies that can be immediately used in any classroom* step by step instruction on how to use each strategy * ideas for planning, modeling, scaffolding, and assessment * samples of over 100 student notebook entries with commentaries* techniques for working with ELLs, emergent writers, and struggling students.A dedicated website provides teacher resources including assessment checklists, reproducibles, sample student work, and more.
