Literacy in Science

There is a huge range of subject-specific vocabulary students need to know in the sciences. It is the unenviable job science teachers to help students through this potential minefield. This course will help science teachers learn about the most effective methods for teaching students that tissue is not just something you blow your nose on!

This course will go into detail about why literacy is so important in science education, how to break vocabulary up into tiers and how to teach the literacy of science in the most effective way. You will complete the course with a range of practical guidance covering the best ways to teach your students how to read, write and understand the language they need to be successful in science.

This course is ideal for science teachers at any level of experience who want to learn more about teaching literacy in science.

Thank you to Amanda Fleck for writing this course.
