Reflection: Student Ownership What are the Effects of Nuclear Power? - Section 4: Communicate


The Literacy Design Collaborative offers templates for science teachers. The templates are easy to understand and make grading a breeze. LDC offers templates for different types of writing. I use the templates in conjunction with Evidence For and Evidence Against   organizers. Students fill out the organizers and then use the LDC template to create a summary. The combination really works together to help organize writing and to write a well-put-together summary. The only modification I have made is to give my students sentence starters to help them start the summary.
