Description

In this inquiry I sought to answer the question: How can I effectively integrate science into the language arts curriculum? I planned and implemented lessons that combined science, reading and writing while student teaching in a second grade classroom. I combined all three of those subjects through a variety of different activities and lessons. Data collection included lesson plans, writing activities that I created, and written reflections on the effectiveness of the lessons. In this final report, I analyze the extent to which the integrated instruction I implemented was effective, and the significant factors contributing to more or less effective integrated learning experiences in science and language arts. I conclude with some reflections for future practice.
