This web seminar is Part 2 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 2 the presenters will focus on a series of webinars and briefs that were developed through collaboration between the SAIL research team and New York State Education Department. Then, they will describe alignment between the NGSS (science standards) and WIDA 2020 Edition (English language development standards) with multilingual learners. Register to Part 1.
