Reading to Learn Science as an Active Process
Gillis, Victoria Ridgeway; MacDougall, Gregory
Science Teacher, v74 n5 p45-50 Jul 2007
One way to help students learn to read science and teach the content simultaneously is by incorporating classroom strategies that actively engage students in thinking, talking, reading, and writing about science. To maximize the probability that strategies will be effective is to use a learning cycle as a guide when designing lessons. This article describes learning cycles in science and reading, including processes involved, and teaching strategies that increase student involvement and learning. (Contains 7 figures.)
