Science Literacy - A Natural Fit
Professional development leaders will find what they need to help teachers understand and use the many connections between balanced literacy instruction and experiential science.

They know that understanding science means being able to think, talk, and write effectively about science. Science and Literacy is the professional development program that makes it happen. Organized around eight complete modules, the comprehensive Guide show how to make talk and writing essential tools in science inquiry.
