Taken from the original website: "Project READI is a multi-institution, multi-disciplinary collaboration designed to develop instructional interventions that support adolescent learners in developing reading for understanding in three content areas—literary analysis, history, and the sciences and across grades 6–12. The Project READI approach focuses on reading for understanding as the capacity to engage evidence-based argumentation drawing on content from multiple texts. Texts are broadly defined as including the multiple modalities and genres of information sources typical in these disciplines."
This website presents instructional and assessment materials that address teaching science literacy and content. They were developed through Project READi (Reading, Evidence, and Argumentation in Disciplinary Instruction). There are sample materials for both middle and high school lessons. Teachers may find these resources helpful as models for how to address literacy skills and reading demands as part of science instruction.
