  1. 1. By Iryna Stephenson INTEGRATING LITERACY INTO CONTENT AREAS: USING FICTION BOOKS TO TEACH SCIENCE
  2. 2. Why focuson reading in ascienceclassand viseversa?  The CCR Anchor Standards in Reading  Integration of science and reading curriculums will: - allow students to strengthen skills that they obtain in one content area, and then practice in another. - introduce students to fictional science/encourage them to read - give science concepts real life application/prove that ideas can be brought to life through science - help students become critical thinkers and succeed in today’s society and their further education. - help students enrich their academic vocabulary
  3. 3. The CCR Anchor Standards in Reading Key Ideas and Details  R.CCR.1: Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.  R.CCR.2: Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas.  R.CCR.3: Analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas develop and interact over the course of a text.
  4. 4. The CCR Anchor Standards in Reading Craft and Structure  R.CCR.4: Interpret words and phrases as they are used in a text, including determining technical, connotative, and figurative meanings, and analyze how specific word choices shape meaning or tone.  R.CCR.5: Analyze the structure of texts, including how specific sentences, paragraphs, and larger portions of the text (e.g., a section, chapter, scene, or stanza) relate to each other and the whole.  R.CCR.6: Assess how point of view or purpose shapes the content and style of a text.
  5. 5. The CCR Anchor Standards in Reading Integration of Knowledge and Ideas  R.CCR.7: Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse formats and media, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.  R.CCR.8: Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, including the validity of the reasoning as well as the relevance and sufficiency of the evidence.  R.CCR.9: Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.
  6. 6. The CCR Anchor Standards in Reading Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity  R.CCR.10: Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.
