How can you use literacy tools used to help students practice the behaviors of scientists? With a disciplinary literacy approach, science teachers can focus on teaching their specialized content by showing students the literacies that truly support scientific thinking – so students can read, write, think, investigate, and communicate as scientists.

This On-Your-Feet Guide will help teachers:

  • Plan instruction that engages students’ natural inquiry and curiosity;
  • Apprentice students toward deeper understanding of scientific concepts, terms, understandings, and text;
  • Help students use their new learning to create, communicate, and participate in science;
  • Teach skills required by science standards and frameworks; and
  • Work with colleagues to design instructional units that incorporate both deeper content learning and science-specific literacy skills.

The strategies in this guide will help you teach students to read, write, think, and do as scientists!
