Strategies for Writing in the Science Classroom

Writing is a valuable learning tool that can quite effectively—and easily—help students learn and understand science content. Teaching it, however, can be challenging for content-area teachers now under pressure from the Common Core Standards’ refocused attention on reading and writing. With step-by-step directions, rubrics, student examples, templates, technology tips, and ideas for differentiation, Kopp goes beyond journals or reports to show how science teachers can use writing to develop critical-thinking skills, improve understanding of scientific concepts, assess students’ progress, and hone skills in content-area writing. Her writing strategies support the Common Core Standards and, because the focus is on applying writing skills—and not teaching writing as an end in itself—science teachers can easily incorporate these strategies in any unit of study. This comprehensive resource makes it easy to incorporate writing in your science class today—and every day!

Science & Children - David Gillam

"Using the 5–E instructional model as a backdrop, this book shows teachers how to target students' writing experiences to various parts of the science lesson. . . .This book would be a great resource for an individual teacher looking for ways to start integrating writing into their science classroom. Teachers could choose one strategy to start with, and then add additional ideas as they become secure with the one they started with. For a school’s science department, this book could provide a framework for building writing into science instruction throughout the department. Each grade level in a middle school could choose one strategy from each of the 5–E’s to use with their classes." - Science & Children
