"Have you ever been frustrated by how quickly students seem to forget what you’ve taught them? Or by their struggles to use what they’ve learned in one context in a new, but related context? When we intentionally help students build schema, we can solve both problems.” -Julie Stern, 2021

In this interactive workshop, we will explore literacy strategies through a science lens to support students build their schema and increase their capacity to think like a scientist. Participants will learn a science literacy routine that will support students to:

  • Access prior knowledge and build comprehension of science concepts and skills
  • Utilize writing to process thinking and apply learning during labs
  • Reflect on learning and self-assess progress
