Student Science Writers: Environmental Issues

As we finish our Exploring Environments student-designed units, students have published blog posts for the science communication assessed task. In this task, assessed for Communication in Science, they had to pick a case study or current news item of interest and direct connection to their group’s unit. Using guidance, models of good science writing, GoogleDocs drafting (and for some, pointers from professional science writer Andy Revkin), they wrote short articles on their case study.

There’s no point writing for an audience of one, so…

..here they are!

If you do visit and feel like posting a comment, remember that these are school students, and that your comments must be appropriate, constructive and positive.

  1. Hi Steve,

    I did a similar project with my IB classes, but love the idea of adding it to a blog so people can have access to what they wrote. I had a very basic rubric for this activity, but I feel you may have something more complex (and maybe better) from what I have. Can you share that with us as well? Hope its not pushing too much.
    Thanks
    Alejandro
