21st Century Skills
Through the connections of science and journalism, our NSF-funded project—SciJourn—has developed innovative new approaches for enhancing science literacy among teens.
Interact with noted authors, science educators, and NSTA program managers as they share strategies for integrating science and literacy using high-quality science trade books.
Enhancing science literacy through science journalism has been the goal of this NSF-funded project.
Like citizen journalists, your students can get to the heart of science literacy—and challenging questions like these—with the “learn by doing” methodology in this innovative book. Front-Page Science uses science journalism techniques to help students become better consumers of, and contributors to, a scientifically literate community.
Drawing on work with high school science teachers as part of an NSF-funded grant, this article presents lessons learned for effectively incorporating writing across the curriculum. With many states preparing to implement the Common Core State Standards, teachers in all subject areas will be asked to require more writing in their classes.
