Conference for K-6 Teachers: Introductory Strategies for Linking Science and Literacy

Elementary (K-6) science teachers interested in learning new approaches and powerful strategies in linking science and literacy are invited to attend this conference held December 2 8:30-3:00 in Portland, Maine and sponsored by the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance. Come learn about and experience classroom strategies and instructional approaches used in several NSF-funded science and literacy projects that incorporate reading, writing, and speaking in the context of inquiry-based science.  The workshop is designed for teachers who are interested in inquiry science and the science literacy connections, but have limited experience with inquiry science, scientists’ notebooks, science talk, and using books to support inquiry-based science.

Registration includes conference materials, Using Science Notebooks in Elementary Classrooms by Michael Klentschy, breakfast, and lunch.
