  A discussion of how to use science to develop essential 21st century skills   Instructional routines that help students become better writers   Useful strategies for  using complex scientific texts in the classroom   Tools to monitor student progress through formative assessment


When students are curious, they thrive. Give your students the strong base they need to create and share scientific ideas that have an impact in the classroom and beyond.

"This is a teacher-friendly book that drew me in from the introduction to the end. Through real-life scenarios combined with useful methods for instruction, it illustrates how science teachers can use language as a tool for teaching science."
