In recent years, the increased attention to standards and achievement in reading has pushed the pendulum back towards incorporating reading within science content knowledge. Teachers are looking for ways to integrate reading and science, while also complementing both subjects. Fortunately, there are reading strategies in science that can both motivate and teach. In this edition, the field editor of Science and Children discusses strategies for incorporating reading strategies into the science curriculum.

I find the Editor’s Notes in the Science & Children journal to be real time savers. According to the editor, the articles in this issue of Science & Children describe the connection between reading skills and science, especially the process skills they have in common. The Editor’s page emphasizes the importance of each entry, and I can read a synopsis of each article found in this issue. For example, in the article, Primary Students and Informational Texts, you will learn that the article describes strategies to use to identify vocabulary terms and important ideas. If you are looking for ways to integrate reading and science, the editor will point you to several excellent articles found in this particular issue of Science & Children.
