How Do Literacy and Science Support Each Other?
As part of our ongoing efforts to advocate for the critical role that science can play in supporting literacy learning, the GSTA board has released this statement on The Role of Science Learning in Supporting Literacy Development. The statement will be submitted as testimony to Georgia House Study Committee on Literacy Instruction. You can learn more about the committee through our partner organization, Science For Georgia, here.
Along with preparing this statement, we hosted a virtual PL series focused on the role that science can play in supporting literacy across grades K-12. These sessions featured teachers, researchers, science education leaders, and policy advocates to share their experiences, expertise, and inspiration. Members can access recordings and other resources from the sessions at this link.
