Literacy Standards: Implications on Science and Social Studies

I thought it might be helpful if we share some thoughts and questions about the implications of the Literacy standards for Science and Social Studies.  This might help us all think through our questions and concerns first so that Friday is as productive as possible.  So, what are you curious about?  What do we need to explore further?  How do we support our teachers as they engage students in comprehending and interacting with text?  What do you need to know more about first in order to better support them?
I found this quote and thought I would share:

A good question is never answered.  It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of idea.  ~John Ciardi

So please ask questions and help support each other through this adventure.  I'm hoping this blog will keep us thinking and collaborating in between our weekly meetings.

  1. This blog is phenomenal.

    I wonder how concurrent, antecedent, and consequential historical events collectively shape a story? I wonder how this kind of thinking can shape the minds of the future.
