Teaching Science to English Learners



The language of science curriculum is complex, abstract, and can be quite a challenge to pronounce. Supporting all learners, especially English learners, as they internalize these terms is a complicated challenge for modern science teachers. Teaching Science to ELs highlights key strategies that are designed specifically for science and are targeted to support the four domains of language while making science content comprehensible for all learners. 


Participants in this training will explore different types of questioning, options for designing and scaffolding open-ended questions, strategies for leading students (i.e., young scientists!) to formulate their own questions, and structures to facilitate productive discussions about their learning. Participants will receive and interact with a copy of the book, “Teaching Science to ELs”.
