Transforming Science Learning: Part 1: Science Learning and Language Integration With Multilingual Learners: Asset-Oriented Framing

December 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This web seminar is Part 1 of a two-part series. The purpose of these two 90-minute sessions is to present contemporary approaches to developing NGSS-designed instructional materials that integrate science and language with multilingual learners. Participants will examine reframing of multilingual learners from a deficit-oriented view to an asset-oriented view across research, policy, and practice. Using a yearlong fifth-grade curriculum called Science And Integrated Language (SAIL), participants will examine how contemporary approaches to integrating science and language are mutually supportive with all students, especially multilingual learners.

In Part 1 the presenters will focus on asset-oriented framing of multilingual learners and contemporary approaches to developing NGSS-designed instructional materials that integrate science and language with multilingual learners. Register to Part 2.
