“All science teachers know that when students struggle with understanding text, they will find their science classes to be incredibly challenging. With this book’s many science-specific examples, organized into different reading and writing categories, it achieves its goal of providing strategies to help students learn to think like scientists. Through it, science teachers can navigate new understandings about science-based literacy instruction to improve both our own practices and students’ understanding.”
