If you've been following GSTA's programming over the past few years, you know how critical it is to incorporate literacy into science teaching. This seminar will share how literacy learning cycles make it easier to hit literacy goals while remaining firmly in a science inquiry mindset. Additionally, we'll look at the Once Upon a Science Book series from NSTA, which offers complete literacy-based lessons for middle grade classrooms in life science, Earth science, and physical science. While the book series targets middle grades, teachers in grades K-12 will gain valuable insights from this session. Registrants will receive an email with the Zoom link on the morning of March 26th.

Jodi Wheeler-Toppen is the author of the Once Upon a Science Book series from NSTA. She holds a Ph.D. in science education from the University of Georgia with a focus on literacy in science, and has been teaching and helping teachers integrate literacy and science for over 20 years.
