Authentic content area writing? for teens? HERE IT IS!
The Kentucky Writing Project is proud to present its first SciJourn Summer Institute! We especially invite middle and high school teachers of science and language arts to attend. See what students of teachers who learn the SciJourn approach are writing: www.scijourner.org.
The SciJourn process is now being piloted in a few elementary schools as well, so teachers of upper elementary are also welcome to explore this authentic research/writing opportunity.
This 3-day workshop will support you in engaging students in meeting the new Common Core Standards for research through the SciJourn process (www.scijourn.org, and www.
teach4scijourn.org). Based on a 4-year NSF-funded research project demonstrating that teaching science journalism using reliable data sources and science-specific writing standards improves students’ understanding of and literate engagement in science.
