Donahue, David M.
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v43 n8 p728-39 May 2000
Describes how preservice teachers in a content area reading course experience an assignment involving reading regularly outside their required reading and reflecting about it in writing. Shows how they came to understand science as a discipline that is engaging and provocative; and designed reading assignments that resembled the collaboration, talk, and "messiness" of experimental science.
