The Science-Literacy Connection

Writing Perfect Pairs: Using Fiction & Nonfiction Picture Books to Teach Life Sciences, K-2 made me see more strongly than ever that there is a deep and critical connection between science and language arts instruction, so I was delighted to see this quotation from Bill Badders, Past President of the National Science Teachers Association, citing a recent study:
"Scientists spend 60-70 percent of their time reading, writing, and communicating. Literacy is an authentic part of science."
