Transcript of WICOR in SCIENCE
V.Moore RMS Science Department
What does WICOR stand for?
List all of the ways in which you have incorporated reading and writing into your instructional plans.
Additional Writing Strategies in Science
Investigation reflections ( eg. summaries of what was learned)
Investigation write ups
"In the classroom, wondering should be as highly valued as knowing."
Rutherford and Ahlgren in “Science for All Americans”
Investigations conducted in science classrooms (eg. testable questions generated by students)
Science Fair projects and research papers (student questions guide the process)
Costa's Levels of Questioning and/or Webb's Depth of Knowledge (use to help generate questions to help students critically think)
Reading to Comprehend
Can be used at the beginning, middle, or end of a lesson
Takes only about two to five minutes.

Collaboration in Science
Socratic Seminars (training TBA)
Reading in science should be authentic!
Embed reading strategies (eg. selective underlining, numbering paragraphs, note taking while reading, previewing the vocabulary)
What are some of the benefits of WICORizing during the instructional planning process?
Identify the components of WICOR
Identify strategies that align with WICOR that will be used in science
I. Review upcoming instructional plans to ensure WICOR is embedded.
II. Review the links on the handout for strategies that can be used in the classroom.
Professional Development Standards
The educator participates in collaborative
learning communities whose members use a cycle of continuous improvement to
achieve goals that align with individual,
school, and district goals for student
