This one day workshop explores how museum resources and school group visits can support both the Common Core literacy standards in reading and writing and science concepts from the New York State Curriculum in Science. Participants will explore a model for linking literacy and science content through visiting Museum Halls, engaging in strategies for reading and writing tasks and discussing how they would use the presented models and resources in their own work.

 Grades 6-12.
