9780873552530: Science for English Language Learners: K-12 Classroom Strategies (PB194X)

It's a simple fact: To do your best with linguistically and culturally diverse students, you need a strong foundation in how best to teach both science and language. That's why you need Science for English Language Learners. This comprehensive guide will expand your expertise in teaching science content and processes, in language development and literacy, and in inquiry-based teaching. Plus it will help you integrate best practices from the very different but highly complementary fields of science education and English language teaching. Designed so you can easily dip in and out of the topics you need most, Science for English Language Learners is divided into four sections: 1. An overview of major themes, principles, and practices that science and English teaching share 2. Practical classroom strategies for planning, teaching, assessing, and extending learning 3. Models for lesson and curriculum development from both language and science educators 4. Helpful context, including an overview of science and English-as-a-second-language standards; research and instructional practices; and ways to integrate science, language, and literacy Useful appendixes cover safety considerations for the ELL teacher, websites of pertinent organizations, and a glossary. Each of the 10 chapters is coauthored by experienced science and language educators who recognize the importance of interdisciplinary teaching.

Review:

In addition to providing a rich foundation of instructional practices ( Parallels in Language and Science Teaching ), the editors offer effective teaching strategies and models for lesson development including standards and assessment frames. An excellent tool for classroom teachers, teacher educators, and resource teachers working with individual students or small groups. --Curriculum Connections, School Library Journal, Fall 2006

A Great Beginner Book for ELL Teachers. Published by the National Science Teachers Association, Science for English Language Learners is a book designed to help teachers implement inquiry based science while maximizing learning opportunities for English Language Learners. Author Ann K. Fathman is a dedicated professional who has dedicated her time to working with English Language Learners while author David T. Crowther spent his career working in the Science Education field. Both authors have joined together and combined their expertise to write a book on how to tackle both areas of education. The book is organized into four sections. Section I provides readers with an extensive overview of Science and English Language Learners. Section II focuses on planning, teaching, assessing, and extending learning. While the chapters focus primarily on strategies for working with ELL students, many strategies would be beneficial for any student. The third section provides sample lesson plans for classrooms from the primary grades to the high school grades. These lessons have been designed and taught by classroom teachers around the country. The fourth section wraps up with information on standards in education and integrating both Science and English as a Second Language. The most beneficial section of this book is by far, the sample lesson plans that have been designed and taught by teachers. The lessons are detailed, including standards and objectives, background, materials, activities, and summary. Depending upon the grade level, charts and diagrams are also included in the lesson plan. It is very easy to follow and provides the reader with a sense of how it will look when you incorporate strategies for teaching English Language Learners in your classroom. However, while standards are included, they may not be relevant to you. The standards listed depend on the creator s state. Living in Pennsylvania, Florida standards are not relevant to me. Another strength of this teaching resource is the beginning sections on English Language Learners. If a reader is unfamiliar with English Language Learners, this book will provide the very basic information to get them started such as strategies for working with, how a second language is learned, and connecting with families. Strategies to incorporate into your teaching are discussed and while this is a science related book, these strategies could be implemented into any area of teaching. If English Language Learners are apart of your community at school, then this book will help provide some basic information on English Language Learners as related to the science education field. Browse through the book, read the chapters that are relevant to you, and you will be satisfied with the information provided and new teaching strategies that you can implement in your own classroom. --Reviewed by: J Stacey Ely (Mechanicsburg, PA) on May 3, 2008
