This one-day workshop will feature classroom practitioners that will share effective science instructional practices for English Learners (ELs). A major challenge for ELs in mastering science content is acquisition of the academic language reflected in science texts and other science instructional materials.
This workshop is geared toward middle- and high school science teachers seeking to learn techniques for teaching inclusive lessons for English Learners, as well as administrators wishing to share this information with their teachers.
