Making the Invisible Visible: Engaging Elementary Preservice Teachers in Science and Literacy Connections
Gwekwerere, Yovita; Buley, Jan
Teaching Science, v57 n2 p36-41 Jun 2011
Picture books can be used to teach children to infer, hypothesise, question, identify, explain and compare. By making the "invisible visible" preservice teachers in Canada explored ways to enhance the development of critical science and literacy skills through the creation of picture books in collaboration with students in Grades 5 and 6. This study demonstrates that the creation of science picture books has contributed to improved content understanding. (Contains 5 figures.)
