Literacy researcher Nell Duke (University of Michigan) has developed a video "Speaking Up for Science and Social Studies" that makes her case for greater time for social studies and science at the elementary level. In this video, Professor Duke shares research on how social studies and science support literacy development and provides a set of implications and cautions for the field. This is an outstanding resource! I urge you to watch it and then invite others to watch it with you and engage in a conversation about the research and the implications. Here is the link to the video https://youtu.be/LAWO2lvAnjI
I would love to hear your thoughts after you watch the video and/or engage in conversations with colleagues.
