Description:

The twenty-first century has brought with it considerable buzz surrounding the connections between science and literacy. Karen Worth and her colleagues have been at the center of this discussion for more than a decade, and they share their very practical ideas and insights. -Lori Fulton Author of Science Notebooks: Writing About Inquiry The voice of real teachers is loud and clear-the centerpiece of this very readable and profoundly helpful book. It will be extraordinarily helpful for anyone interested in using writing and talk to enhance the learning in a classroom where students have a direct experience with science as inquiry. -Harold Pratt Past NSTA president The case for cross-disciplinary collaboration is supported by moving testimonials from classroom teachers who joined the authors in their quest for a deeper understanding of the science-literacy connection. A must read for teachers in either domain. -Peter Dow Author of Outdoor Inquiries: Taking Science Investigations Outside the Classroom Essentials of Science and Literacy
