Teaching Reading and Writing

How do you teach reading and writing skills in a high school science classroom?

I am teaching freshman physical science (chemistry).

This is a really loaded question. You will likely need to teach literacy skills alongside science content. I would model a lot of reading and breaking down of questions through think-alouds. I used RAFT (role, audience, format, topic) strategies in my classes to incorporate literacy with the content. PBL units are also good ways to incorporate literacy.
