Students Use Language in the Sciences
- The Literacy in the Disciplines Interview Project
Because what students do with language as they learn about and through any given discipline should be the end result of our work in disciplinary literacy, we share this example of student work in science. In this video newscast, students Garrett and Ben demonstrate their understanding of the language of science, particularly physics, as they explain the principles of matter and antimatter. Note the precise use of the language of science in their presentation. Watch this video to see them in action.
Josh Lawrence at the University of California, Irvine, shared this video about reading a graph like a scientist with us. We hope you’ll find it useful:
