1. A new book, published by the National Science Teachers Association Press, uses a combination of research, classroom case studies, and teacher perspectives to explore teaching science to English-language learners. The book focuses on several key questions, including whether students can learn science before they are proficient in English, if and how a student’s cultural background can support and extend science learning, and how to support the development of scientific vocabulary. Teaching Science to English Language Learners: Building on Students’ Strengths focuses on elementary- and middle school-level instruction.

NSTA makes a sample chapter available on its website.

2. At the end of January, Larry Ferlazzo created his list of Best Websites To Help Beginning Readers, aimed at English-language learners. Check it out.
