SCIENCE & THE LIBRARY Collaborations to promote science Literacy Slide 2 Centennial Jr. High Science Team Jessika Christensen Lindy Worden David WoodTyson Grover Renee' Nicholls Angela Stewart Slide 3 A Natural Fit Both include a systematic organization of information Science is a way of knowing, a process for gaining knowledge and understanding of the natural world Libraries have the resources to help! Librarian & Science teachers share common goals Slide 4 Promoting Science Literacy Collaboration Example 1: Science Book Talks Science Intended Learning Outcome: o Students should Read and look at books and other science materials voluntarily Slide 5 Promoting Science Literacy Collaboration Example 2: Exploring Scientists Science Intended Learning Outcome: o Explore science related careers Slide 6 Promoting Science Literacy Collaboration Example 3: Content Picture Books Slide 7 Promoting Science Literacy Collaboration Example 4: Reading a textbook Slide 8 Research & The Scientific Process Collaboration Example 5: Research Skills Slide 9 Supporting Research Collaboration Example 6: Science Research Titles Slide 10 Supporting Research Collaboration Example 7: Plagiarism in research Science Learning Outcome: o Students use precise scientific language o Cite sources correctly Slide 11 Writing Examples in Science Wanted Example: Assigned Letter Example: Wanted: An element commonly known as Silicon. It goes by the abbreviation Si and has the atomic number of 14. This elusive element takes on characteristics of both metals and non-metals and can be found grouped between the two types of elements on the periodic table along with other such metalloids. Its appearance is dark and silvery with a metallic like sheen. Yet dont be fooled. Although Silicon may look metallic, it is not a good conductor. You may find this element being used in computer cells or other electronic devices. If found please return to its proper location on the periodic table; row 2 column 14. Letter Assigned: O Organized in rows and columns On the same column elements share chemical properties Occupied in the upper right hand are the non-metals Other basic information shown includes name, atomic number, and atomic mass Ordered by atomic number in rows called periods Other than hydrogen, elements on left side are metals Orbiting electrons shown by atomic numbers One column is also called a group or family and is numbered with Roman numerals Occurrences of bonding when electrons gained or lost Outer most shell is where bonds are formed Slide 12 In Conclusion Library Collaborations Literacy Resources Research Lessons Research sources WebPath Express & Pioneer Science Journal Articles LITERACY IS A SHARED RESPONSIBILITY!
