Reading as Scientists
Shanahan, Marie-Claire
Science and Children, v48 n1 p54-58 Sep 2010
Using an adapted version of a recently published scientific article, a group of sixth graders worked together identifying conclusions, deciding on appropriate evidence, suggesting improvements for the study, and recommending further investigations for scientists. This experience provided opportunities for these students to use reading to decide on the quality of a scientific study--just like scientists do when they read. (Contains 3 figures and 1 online resource.)
