Example text

However, textbooks take impersonalization even further than PSL, because even Learning from Scientific Texts 21 authorship of the scientific ideas is not always acknowledged (Parkinson and Adendorff 2004). Moreover, in summarizing the accepted facts of science, textbook writers situate themselves as representatives of the powerful community, which is more powerful in terms of the possession of knowledge than the readers (Parkinson 2001). This relationship between reader and writer is in stark contrast to the situation surrounding the use of PSL, in which readers and writers have much more equal standing in terms of what they know.

Finally, the importance of reading is demonstrated by the fact that there is a positive correlation between the number of journal articles read and the professional achievement of scientists: “award winners read 53 % more articles than nonwinners. Scientists who serve on high-level projects or special committees read around 21 % more journal articles than those scientists who do not. Scientists who Reading Is Important to Science and Scientists 37 are considered high achievers by their peers read 59 % more articles than their colleagues even when other variables are held constant.

Of course, their conceptions of the nature of experiments, of a scientific test, of evidence, and of the workings and functions of scientific instruments might be badly distorted. Yet, they seem to learn quite early that science is empirical. It may well seem that this is not much of an accomplishment, but it appears to be an enduring lesson and one upon which science education profitably can build. The Literacy Basis of Science We have argued (Norris and Phillips 2003; Norris et al. 2009) that having a basis in literacy is another constitutive feature of science.
