Vast research substantiates the integration of science and literacy, but there are very few books that correlate findings and address specific practices. Integrating Science and Literary Instruction connects scientific research and best instructional practices in literacy and integrates this with the inquiry-based scientific process. The authors emphasize process, not a particular program, and focus on three overall areas that influence the merging of literacy and science: inquiry-based instruction, extensions of the science literacy framework, and special issues within the design of each section. Each chapter provides in-depth information to support and guide those in the educational field as they implement a science-related literacy focus. This book includes: · A discussion on the connection between literacy and science · An overview of the Inquiry Based Science Process · Details on how to integrate science into the literacy process · A resource guide with names of books that can be integrated into a science inquiry based lesson For K-8 teachers, principals, central office administrators, and university professors.
