Writing in Science Papers from a Seminar with Science Teachers (Essex, England, May 1974).
Martin, Nancy; And Others
This is one in a series of eight discussion pamphlets produced by the Writing Across the Curriculum Project dealing with some of the issues connected with writing in the schools and their relation to learning. The seven papers in this pamphlet were drawn from a seminar involving a small number of science teachers and cover a variety of topics, including science as a process rather than a body of knowledge, the contribution of writing tasks to a child's scientific understanding, provision of a range of audiences in science writing, and the implications for language development of the sorts of tasks being set on science worksheets.
