  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.
