Literacy: The Key to Success in Science
Driven by STEM goals and Common Core’s rigorous standards, more and more educators are seeking to reverse America’s science achievement slide by focusing on student literacy. The impetus for this movement is clear: students who are prepared in reading have a 300% greater chance of success in science than students who are unprepared.* In this paper, discover how educators are:
- Using innovative approaches to make science instruction accessible to all learners – and to enable teachers and students to succeed together in the classroom and on state and national assessments
- Advancing inquiry-based science instruction via the “5E Model” (engage, explore, explain, elaborate, evaluate) which moves from teacher-directed to student-centered learning focused on questioning, critical thinking and problem solving
- Utilizing core curriculum differentiated by students’ Lexile®/reading levels to enable science content acquisition while seamlessly reinforcing key literacy needs
