 Integrating STEM With Literacy
 
 Literacy for the 21st century includes literacy in STEM as well as
 cross-disciplinary skills in examining evidence and making arguments. 
 There is significant overlap among the Common Core Standards for English
 Language Arts, those for Mathematics, and the Next Generation Science
 Standards.  However, as K-12 educators face growing demands and limited
 time, most teaching still occurs in instructional silos. This
 presentation will discuss opportunities for integrating literacy with STEM fromK-12.
 From using science journals and scientific texts in reading lessons to
 leveraging poetry, nonfiction, fiction, and even a musical to illustrate
 STEM concepts, we will explore a range of curricular and informal
 learning resources and ideas.
