Science + Literacy = Better Together Registration Closes May 29

Please join us June 5-7 for Science Module 4,

The stage will be set as participants don their student-learner hats and are immersed in a three-dimensional storyline that uses literacy strategies to support students figuring out applicable Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCI) through Science and Engineering Practices (SEP) in order to understand a Crosscutting Concept (CCC). We will compare content and disciplinary literacy and consider what it means to view like a scientist. Next, we will examine what it means to write, talk, and listen like a scientist and how we can support and cultivate these characteristics in our elementary scientists to meet both the Iowa Core Literacy AND Science Standards.

In-district follow-up will be provided in the fall (to occur between late September and November 30) to support educators in the implementation of science lessons/unit developed during the face-to-face sessions in June.

This course is offered for license renewal credit or graduate credit through Buena Vista University.
