Methods and Strategies: Literacy in the Learning Cycle
Everett, Susan; Moyer, Richard
Science and Children, v47 n2 p48-52 Oct 2009
Trade books can be used in all phases of the learning cycle to support effective teaching and learning. Romance and Vitale (1992) found that texts and other nonfiction science books can be effective tools for teaching reading, as the science activities give learners a purpose for their reading. In this article, the authors share ways to effectively use trade books within the 5E learning cycle inquiry teaching/learning model. They also provide examples of trade books appropriate for each phase and identify ways to incorporate their use. (Contains 1 figure and 1 online resource.)
