The Rhyme and Reason for Integrating Children’s Literature in the Science Classroom
As educators in science leadership roles, each of you has the ability to influence the classroom environment. This session will focus on the research behind integration of children’s literature with scientific investigations in the classroom, as well as, provide information on various strategies and ideas to help build student engagement and learning when you merge science and literacy competencies. Following a brief review of the rationale for such an approach, participants will also participate in sample activities that help educators connect these topics around the topic of natural resources which help to integrate several different science disciplines along with a focus on a local impact.
