Science in the Classroom is a free resource for teachers from Science Magazine. On Science in the Classroom, you will find research articles with interactive annotations to help students understand the content of the articles. In the right margin of each article, you will find a section called “learning objective”. The learning lens offers seven types of interactive annotations that students can activate. Of these seven types of annotations, the glossary annotation is the one that students are likely to use the most often. Glossary annotations highlight key words and terms in the article. Clicking on a highlighted annotation reveals a definition.
Applications for education
In addition to interactive annotations for students, Science in the Classroom provides teachers with discussion and reading comprehension questions. At the bottom of each classroom science article, teachers will also find a list of suggested teaching activities.
