Literacy Strategies for Science Classroom and Beyond
Science literacy is more than reading and writing. Students also need to be able to interpret data, communicate information, and listen with a critical ear. Explore science literacy skills through the lens of homeostasis. Using literacy skills to decipher text while fostering inquiry and connecting concepts strengthens student engagement. Exploring a variety of information sources such as expository text, videos, and charts/graphs allows students to engage with content in various formats. Each of the purposeful activities help students learn and interact with content text. Identifying the text structure increases text comprehension. Embedding speaking and reading strategies strengthens students’ science reasoning skills.

Just the Facts
Participants will explore ways to build computational reasoning. Fact fluency has a direct impact on STEM. Traditional methods of teaching fluency in the classroom have involved flash cards, mad minutes and parental help working with students who need extra help. Using a fact fluency game-based system, students can experience individualized instruction, targeted practice while having fun in a game-based environment. While the students are enjoying this experience, teachers have data captures that can be used to refine instruction, inform parents of student progress and open up more rigorous math instruction.

Prepare for Next Generation Science Standards with online interactive simulations
Online interactive simulations help prepare students for the Next Generation Science Standards which are not only rich in content for students to understand deeply, but also rich in science practice. Using simulations, students can manipulate key variables, generate and test hypotheses, and engage in extensive “what-if” experimentation. Simulations also allow students to collect, analyze and interpret data, use and evaluate models of scientific concepts, and identify patterns at different scales in a system. These activities fulfill the goals described in 'A Framework of K-12 Education' in its Standards of Scientific and Engineering Practice, Crosscutting Concepts, and Disciplinary Core Ideas.
