Sample text

It is critical that students understand the differences between science fact and science fiction. When students study significant scientific theories, science history, and the evolution of science, they recognize the value of obtaining and relying on evidence. METHODS OF TEACHING SCIENCE One major factor that influences a student’s interest in and respect for science is the way that the student is taught. Traditional science instruction often consists of reading, writing, and memorizing facts. In contrast, inquiry-based science provides students with exciting opportunities to explore, investigate, research, and discover, which are natural to the learning process.

The new vision for mathematics is similar to the new vision for science. As these two disciplines attempt to recover their essences in the midst of a sophisticated technological society, they begin to focus on the similar components of concept understanding, thinking or process skills, and dispositions or habits of mind. An examination of these components reveals the remarkable relationship between science and mathematics. Assessments in science that focus on these basic components will be potential assessments in mathematics as well.

This interactive model for language literacy has compelling implications for the context in which language should develop. Clearly, a real-world context provides an excellent way to help students develop language literacy. This is so because in a real-world context, multiple opportunities surface for language to be used for different purposes. In fact, the IRA and NCTE (1996) language standards affirm the importance of “authentic learning experiences that involve a variety of contexts” (p. 14).
