The National Academies Press just recently released a new report titled- Literacy for Science: Exploring the Intersection of the Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core for ELA Standards. Like other publications from the National Academies, you can read the report FREE online in your browser or download a PDF for FREE (requires a login with your email). The report contains 5 main sections with topics ranging from The Language of Science Text and Talk to Preparing Teachers to Effectively Interweave Science and Literacy Instruction.
I’m interested to hear your ideas about this report and how you might use this for your own professional development as a teacher of science or as a tool for developing professional development for others. I’ll report back more once I’ve had a chance to dig into it.
You can read the report HERE.

Fascinating! I have found myself thinking about the intersection between NGSS and CCSS ELA many times! I use the National Geographic Explorer magazines (Pioneer and Pathfinder editions) for reading instruction in my classroom and have tied it into STEM! The teacher’s guides (which are free and accessible online) clearly outline the CCSS and NGSS standards for each article. Love the integration!!
