To make the information easy for students to grasp, the authors have
adapted the source material extensively. They highlight the role of
people in the narrative and provide both context and relevant data for
all investigations. To facilitate teaching, the book also provides
helpful teacher questions and prompts.

Each of the evidence-based texts featured in the book ties into one of
five disciplinary core ideas—from molecules to organisms, ecosystems,
heredity, biological evolution, and human impacts on Earth systems.
Teachers can use Reading Nature as an inquiry activity at the
beginning of a unit or as an introduction to an investigation. They can
also use it to pull ideas together before a summative assessment.
