This session will explore a variety of issues related to the relationships between language, inquiry and science in elementary classrooms.  This session will examine topics specifically related to reading and writing and discourse as we explore the role of each in science teaching.  When students read and write and talk about science, teachers are able to understand their beginning ideas and reasoning. Teachers will come away with practical activities and strategies to engage students in reading, writing and productive discourse activities that elevate understanding of science concepts and support inquiry-based science learning.
