The No Child Left Behind legislation has called for increased accountability across the content areas. Due to the pressures of high stakes testing within many states to increase language arts and math test scores, science has become optionalized. It has then become the role of teacher leaders to set an example and maintain a strong presence at their sites for the teaching of science through language arts and math connections. This forum will serve as a platform for these teacher leaders to discuss and share strategies on how they have overcome the emphasis on language arts and mathematics, while continuing to incorporate science as part of their daily instruction.
