Abstract

One of the major goals of science education is preparing students to be scientifically literate. Argumentation is a core practice to promote both scientific literacy and science learning. However, incorporating argumentation into science teaching can be challenging for both teachers and students. The author introduces the Science Talk–Writing Heuristic as a teaching approach that science teachers can use to integrate literacy practices and science learning in an argumentative environment.
