In this course, teachers will experience best practices for supporting students' use of reading, writing, speaking, and listening to promote students’ understanding of Iowa's Science Standards. Literacy strategies (e.g. close reading, annotating text, creating/analyzing graphs, etc.) that can assist students with reading, writing, speaking, and listening for understanding in science will be modeled. The Science and Engineering Practices that support developmental literacy for all learners will be the focus for the session.
