Teaching Reading in Science
- Course Section Description:
Help students unravel the mysteries and complexities of scientific concepts by training them to approach science texts in new ways. Learn effective strategies to help your students become independent readers and learners as they navigate science texts such as arranging ideas, understanding text organization, setting goals for reading, making meaningful connections, and persevering through challenging materials. This course aligns with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics’ (NCTM) Communication Standards.
Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.
Classroom Link-Access to students recommended. PBS Classroom Link courses ask learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available).
For assignments and evaluation details, see the full Syllabus.
