Description: In science, for instance, the successful science student needs to understand the assumptions that guide scientists' work, the processes associated with scientific inquiry, what forms of evidence are valid for making scientific claims, and how scientists communicate about their work (Lemke, 1 990). [...] to become competent in science (or any other discipline), a student must possess adequate disciplinary literacy skills - he or she must comprehend science texts, talk about science in ways understood by other scientists and non-scientists, and present scientific information in various forms, including tables, graphs, diagrams, and other modes of visual representation (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2000).
