Science, Technology and Society as Experienced Through Children's Literature by Carol M Butzow( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In order to prepare children for the responsibilities of citizenship in a technological society, the Science, Technology and Society (sts) approach, which integrates various subject matter disciplines, can be implemented through the use of children's literature. In this way, sts units combine language arts, reading and literature, and teach and emphasize reading and writing in the meaningful context of science, as well as social studies, math, and the arts. By using books which have a strong story line and are of interest to children, facts and ideas can be presented as part of the world which they know or perceive. For example, Virginia L. Burton's "Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel" illustrates several of the problems of a rapidly changing society, including the themes of change and obsolescence. The societal issues which confront children at an early age can be addressed, enabling children to develop effective thinking skills and communicate their ability to think and make decisions. (Attached materials include a sample sts unit; activity suggestions by topic; classroom, small group, and individual activity suggestions; a list of additional resources, a bibliography of sts related children's literature for primary grades, and eight references.)

Science Through Children's Literature: An Integrated Approach.Second Edition by Carol M Butzow( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this book is to suggest an alternative approach to the teaching of elementary science in light of more contemporary definitions of both reading and science. This method utilizes well-selected and conceptually and factually correct works of narrative children's literature. Although the method is most easily applied with picture books aimed at grades k-4, it is also possible to employ it in higher grades using chapter books, or by excerpting longer narrative works such as biographies, journals, or narrative accounts of real-life events. Part I of this book describes an integrated approach to scientific instruction using children's fictional literature as the foundation. Discussion considers the developmental needs of young students and how well-chosen fiction can enable children to understand and remember scientific concepts. Criteria for judging such books are presented and appropriate activities for their use are suggested. It also suggests ways to work with the school library media specialist. A sample unit utilizing a classic children's book as the basis for an integrated science unit in the classroom is included. Parts ii, iii, and iv contain activity units that cover life science, earth and space science, and physical science, respectively. Thirty-one children's books that can easily be adapted to the elementary curriculum are suggested and specific activities are provided for teachers to use in the classroom. An appendix containing answer keys to the puzzles included in some of the activity units is also included. (Ask)
Over Land and Sea: Intermediate Science Through Children's Literature by Carol M Butzow( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book suggests an approach to science instruction that integrates literature as an alternative form of instruction or to enrich textbook instruction. It uses conceptually and factually correct works of fiction and outlines activities where students are allowed to do the majority of the work and the teachers act as facilitators. Though the emphasis is on earth science and life science; the physical sciences, natural sciences, social sciences and the arts are integrated into each chapter. A wide variety of activities are provided for each literary work including hands-on activities, field trips, craft projects, library research, and collateral reading and writing. Topics covered include: the American prairie, the arid environment, tornado and weather, the Arctic, the north woods, the rocky mountains, fossils, coral reefs, tropical lagoons, California coastal islands, the open ocean, whales and marine fishing, freshwater lakes, and wetlands.
