The Student Reader provides science literacy readings that are integrated into the flow of activities in the Teacher Guide. Readings include factual articles, art and literature, arguments in social-scientific contexts, the reliability of sources, and other aspects of science literacy.
The Student Reader includes one reading collection per week for every week of the unit. A week’s reading collection relates to the lessons completed in the previous week. The reading is assigned at the beginning of the week with the accompanying writing exercise due at the end of the week. The reading and writing exercises are designed to be completed by students independently, with brief, supporting, teacher-facilitated discussions at the beginning, midpoint, and end of the week.
