Connecting Science and Literacy in a World of Standards, Frameworks, and Testing et al

Karen Worth
Education Development Center
Newton, Mass.

This working session will set a stage for discussion among participants on ways to move towards an authentic connection between science and literacy in a world of content-oriented standards and high-stakes accountability. A brief presentation will begin to define some of the barriers and constraints as well as the possibilities these present for linking inquiry-based science and meaningful literacy. Remarks will be followed by small- and large-group discussion and debate on the nature of successful approaches and strategies.
