Description

This book is about the fundamental nature of talk in school science. Wolff-Michael Roth articulates a view of language that differs from the way science educators generally think about it. While writing science is one aspect of language in science, talking science may in fact constitute a much more important means by which we navigate and know the world-the very medium through which we do science.
