Links in the Chain: Bringing Together Literacy and Science
Taylor, Neil; Hansford, Diane; Rizk, Nadya; Taylor, Subhashni
Primary Science, n146 p5-7 Jan 2017
In Australia, the Federal Government and the Australian Academy of Science have developed a programme entitled "Primary Connections" (primaryconnections.org. au), aimed at supporting the teaching of science in the primary sector. The programme makes strong and explicit links between science and literacy through the use of word walls, science journals, discussion groups and procedural texts, among a range of other techniques. There are many ways to link or integrate science and literacy and this article reports on an approach used with pre-service primary teachers at an Australian University, specifically the use of science-based texts to introduce science topics to primary pupils.
