The Common Core Standards now require science teachers to incorporate literacy standards into their classrooms. This series of seven lessons focuses on seven of the Common Core Science Literacy Standards. For each standard, the lessons apply a standard literacy lesson template to a science context and allows the science teacher to customize it based upon the content of their current unit. In this way, the lessons both address literacy issues in a science context and allow for further learning in the specific unit of study (in other words, it doesn't require you to depart too much from the topic at hand).
This lesson set focuses on Standards 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. They can be purchased individually at my store or all together for a reduced price here.
