English Language Learners and the Next Generation Science Standards

edited by: Okhee Lee, Emily Miller, and Rita Januszyk

The science and engineering practices described in the NGSS are language intensive and present both language demands and language learning opportunities for English language learners. This vignette illustrates how very young students, many of whom are English language learners, can develop proficiency in these language-intensive science practices while engaging with rigorous science content. Teacher background information, standards, assessments, and references are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, About the Editors, Contributors, Preface, and Index.
