Middle School Science Minute: Using Literature in the Science Classroom
I was recently reading the November/December 2020 issue of “Science Scope” a publication for middle school teachers from the National Science Teaching Association.
In this issue, I read the “From the Editor’s Desk“ column written by Patty McGinnis. Her article was entitled “Using Literature in the Science Classroom.”
