Literacy in the science classroom

Literacy is not a term often discussed among science educators. And yet, new standards in both science and English/Language Arts call for the teaching of literacy for scientific purposes within science classrooms. To many science teachers and students, however, the only time that literacy plays a role in science leaning is when students are asked to read-a request that is usually limited to a textbook passage-or when they are expected to write laboratory reports.
