SingTeach Sep/Oct 2014: Science Communication

To thrive in a world driven by technology and science, our students will have to be scientifically literate. They need content knowledge, but they will also need to understand and use the language of science.

Guest edited by Dr Tang Kok Sing of NSSE, the Sep/Oct issue of SingTeach focuses on how students read, write and talk in the Science classroom.

Also, this issue is our 50th! To celebrate this milestone, we’ll be holding a contest for readers in early October. More details to come on our Facebook page, so don’t forget to “Like” us!
