Literacy in Science - A National Literacy Trust workshop FULL
Limited Capacity full

EEF/Royal Society research published in 2017 found that the strongest factor affecting pupil achievement in science was understanding scientific vocabulary and written texts. This workshop uses evidence-based research to investigate effective literacy strategies for teaching and learning in science. Participants will explore a toolkit of resources to support direct teaching of subject - specific vocabulary and ways of reading non- fiction science texts. All teaching and learning approaches will focus on key scientific text types, supporting teachers to deconstruct, annotate and create useful models of science information reports, explanations and comparisons.
