I have been teaching Earth science in NYC public schools for six years
I believe that incorporating literacy strategies into science is just as important as reading and writing in an ELA classroom. Students who struggle to read and write need additional support regardless of content area. My lessons are designed to reinforce these skills, and build confidence in students. I differentiate my tasks to meet the needs of every child in my classroom. I also focus on creating tasks that are engaging, and thought provoking.
