Science Literacy: Reading Science and Assessing Resources with the “CRAP” Tool
To accommodate educators' schedules, this workshop will be offered twice. Workshop content will be the same at both sessions.
- Session 1: Monday, June 21, 4:00–5:00 PM EDT
- Session 2: Tuesday, June 29, 4:00–5:00 PM EDT
Science literacy involves an understanding of how science works, and using this understanding in making both personal and societal decisions. Participants will investigate free, classroom-ready HHMI BioInteractive resources including a framework for checking the reliability of resources, analyzing the parts of a scientific paper, and critically evaluating the research presented.

This workshop is for teachers of all levels of high school biology or other life science. Strategies for synchronous online instruction will be modeled.
- The workshop will be hosted via Zoom meeting.
- Our workshops actively engage participants and often feature small group work in breakout rooms to build community, foster discussion, and model classroom practice.
- Workshop attendees will receive a certificate of participation and access to the free BioInteractive resources modeled in the workshop.
Live transcript will be available in the main Zoom meeting room. If you require live transcription in the breakout rooms, or any other accommodations in order to fully participate in the workshop, please indicate this on the registration form.
