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.
