As a science teacher, I also want to incorporate literacy and reading into science. I thought it would be cool to have something called "Article Fridays" (or monthly, and maybe a more creative name) where students read articles and summarize them on different chemistry topics that they find interesting. I'd have a couple students each time share what they found, and they'd all hand them in. I work on a block schedule so I'm not sure exactly how this would work. Does anyone have creative ideas on how to get kids thinking of science that's in the 'real world'? I'd probably do this with my honors or AP classes.
