Science Vocabulary for All
Shook, Alison C.; Hazelkorn, Michael; Lozano, Elizabeth R.
Science Teacher, v78 n3 p45-49 Mar 2011
Teaching new biology concepts to ninth graders can be tough, and teaching students with disabilities even tougher--but we are accountable for "all" students. These authors used a cooperative learning strategy called "Collaborative Strategic Reading" in an inclusive ninth-grade biology class to see whether they could "hook" students and, at the same time, improve students' scientific vocabulary. This article describes their experience. (Contain 3 figures.)
