Finally! Finally! Once Upon an Earth Science Book: 12 Interdisciplinary lessons to create confident readers

My editor just informed me that the link is live for ordering Once Upon an Earth Science Book: 12 interdisciplinary activities to create confident readers. This book is the companion to Once Upon a Life Science Book. Each lesson includes a learning cycle built around an activity, a text, and a writing assignment and includes specific reading skills that can be taught at the same time that you address important content goals. Available from NSTA Press, Amazon, and other book sellers.

Reading and Writing in Science

If your school is looking for staff development to implement the Once Upon books or simply to improve reading and writing in the content areas (without using the books), please get in touch! I help teachers use literacy to support their science (or social studies) instruction, and vice versa. I also address scientific argumentation (making claims and supporting them with evidence).
