14 Books That Connect Students With Valuable Scientists’ Struggles

14 Books That Connect Students With Valuable Scientists’ Struggles | 21st century Learning Commons | Scoop.it

A study found that students who read about famous scientists' personal and intellectual struggles do better in their science classes. Great list of books chosen by librarians.

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Books that connect students to science and promote read alouds in the learning commons.  You are never too old for a read aloud.
