Language in Learning Mathematics Technology and Science
The small but growing literacy research base in science, mathematics and social studies clearly indicates that language is both a means and an end to contemporary content literacy. Contemporary literacy comprises the abilities and habits of mind to construct understanding, the big ideas of the disciplines, and the communications to inform and persuade other people about these big ideas. Print-based language components of science literacy, numerical literacy and the reading-learning-writing connections will be explored.
