How to create a 5E reading lesson using ChemMatters

WEBINAR (1 hour) recorded May 12, 2020


Science teachers are being asked to incorporate more reading and writing into their lessons to support the development of students’ literacy. Toward this goal, teachers can use magazine articles that connect science concepts to the real world. In this session, we will explain how you can develop engaging 5E (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate) lesson plans based on articles in ChemMatters magazine or other media.

These lesson plans will improve your students’ understanding of scientific concepts by relating their learning to everyday life. The lesson plans will also help your students think critically and understand the nature of scientific knowledge, including how science is done.

We created learning goals and assessments that are based on the three dimensions of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for ELA. Join us as we discuss how to make successful lesson plans that incorporate reading science-based articles that you can use in the classroom.
