Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Research confirms, using literature in science class can improve student achievement. Ideas to try on Monday? You bet. “I wonder” prompts abound in children’s literature! Join me as I jump into some wonderful books, both fiction and non fiction that can become a source of inspiration and engagement for even the most reluctant reader. As we sample from a variety of new and old favourites I will share tips, techniques and tasks that prompt connections to literacy, numeracy and the competencies. Comprehension matters and is best developed through authentic reading, writing and problem solving. I will suggest ways you can use literature prompts to develop science inquiries that weave together foundational skills for language arts and mathematics and align to a range of outcomes across the grades in the Science curriculum. Research confirms, using literature in science class can improve student achievement. Ideas to try on Monday? You bet.
