Lundstrom, Meg
Instructor, v114 n6 p25-26, 28, 60 Mar 2005
Linking hands-on science with literacy and the curriculum is growing in appeal, particularly among teachers educated as generalists who feel unprepared to deal with the depth of questions that inquiry and expanded reading can inspire in kids. In this article, four examples of teachers who have tried to link science and literacy are presented. One such example is how Sephali Ray, a seventh-grade science teacher, has tried to let his students understand genetics and its implications to society through movies and experiments.
