Spinning Our Webs: From Science to Literacy
University of Missouri-St. Louis
Hands-on observations are used as a springboard to science reading, writing, and talk. This session focuses on the "when" questions--the order in which observation, note taking, reading, conversation, and writing build from one another. We also examine how hands-on, inquiry-based science can improve descriptive writing and the ways in which text, both trade books and students' own writing, can improve science understanding.
