With each title clearly linked to the science curriculum, WorldWise is a high-interest literacy program that encourages inquiry and questioning while extending knowledge in science and a range of STEM topics linked to the curriculum.
WorldWise teaches reading strategies simultaneously with natural, earth and physical science concepts. Lesson Plans for each text establish a reading focus with explicit links to the science curriculum.
Students will develop strategies and skills to read informative texts across a range of text types while they learn to become informative text writers.
