Using Literature in the Science Classroom
I was recently reading the November/December 2020 issue of “Science Scope” a publication for middle school teachers from the National Science Teaching Association. In this issue, I read the “From the Editor’s Desk“ column written by Patty McGinnis. Her article was entitled “Using Literature in the Science Classroom.”
The Next Generation Science Standards contain numerous connections to the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts as verification of the supporting role that literature serves when learning science.
