This is the third installment in GSTA's virtual PL series on elementary science and literacy. This webinar will leverage a nationally recognized expert, Dr. Gina Cervetti, to help elementary teachers here in Georgia strengthen science and literacy learning for students in their classrooms.
Dr. Gina Cervetti from the University of Michigan researches the interface of literacy and content-area learning. She is interested in how inquiry experience in science can provide an authentic and engaging meaning-based context for literacy learning; she also examines the role of sustained engagement in a set of ideas for literacy development; and she is looking into ways to help students bring the tools of inquiry to bear on questions they encounter across the curriculum and outside of school. Dr. Cervetti is also involved in work on academic discourse and vocabulary acquisition in science and on how curriculum materials can best support teachers’ practice and teacher learning. Dr. Cervetti will use her research expertise and her experience working with teachers and students to share how you can use science inquiry to drive literacy learning in your elementary classroom.
