Description

Over the centuries, the language of science has become remote from everyday spoken English and less accessible to many English speakers. For students to be effectively apprenticed into the disciplines of Science, they need to be able to engage with scientific genres and the features of science language, including technical terms and grammatical metaphor.

This teacher resource is concerned with the explicit teaching of science literacy. It presents analyses of science texts, the main features of scientific English and gives teachers the tools to explicitly teach the language of Science.
