Join us for an interview with Kim Jaxon and Leslie Atkins Elliott, authors of Composing Science. We’ll talk about teaching writing, teaching science, and how to create classrooms in which students use writing to learn and think scientifically. Kim and Leslie will talk about  concrete approaches for engaging students in practices that mirror the work that writing plays in the development and dissemination of scientific ideas, as opposed to replicating the polished academic writing of research scientists, addressing a range of genres that can help students deepen their scientific reasoning and inquiry.
