Reflection: Vertical Alignment Sea Stars --The Divas of the Sea - Section 4: Explain


Whenever possible, I bring in as many reading and writing features into my science lessons as I can fit.  I believe it is very important for the students to know and understand that becoming a well rounded scientist, does not mean having great ideas and questions.  A good solid scientist needs to be well read, know how to utilize those reading strategies and also be a  good writer.  For this reason, I want to always be sure that I include the language of reading and writing within my teaching.  

Showing children the source where the information originated helps them to understand that I do not know everything. I need to learn and find information just as a real scientist would.
