If you work with linguistically and culturally diverse students, you and your students will benefit from the foundation this book provides for teaching both science and language. Science for English Language Learners brings you the best practices from different but complementary fields of science education and English language teaching, integrating the two.
The book is designed so you can easily dip in and out of the topics you want. It’s organized into four sections:
1. Principles and practices that science and English teaching share
2. Classroom strategies for planning, teaching, assessing, and extending learning
3. How to design lessons and model lessons for K—12 students
4. Context and research, including an overview of science and English as a second language standards; instructional practices; and ways to integrate science, language, and literacy
Each of the 10 chapters is coauthored by experienced science and language educators who coordinate their approaches to teaching English language learners. By capitalizing on strengths from both fields, Science for English Language Learners will help you reach all students.
