The Academic Language and Literacy Training Project. Mathematics & Science for English Learners: Curriculum.
Hough, Ruth A.; And Others
The curriculum guide for the Academic Language and Literacy Training Project (ALLT) developed at Georgia State University is presented in this report. ALLT was a federally-funded training project designed to improve and extend the specialized training of Georgia teachers of limited-English-proficient students in the core curriculum areas of mathematics and science. The project provided teachers with a curriculum integrating academic language, literacy, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills for LEP students with math and science content. Project products included a teacher development curriculum (presented here), videotape and guide, model lesson plans, and final report. The curriculum is designed for either on-site or distance learning, and consists of 12 sessions. Materials provided for each session include a list of general purposes, language objectives and needed materials, introductory notes, suggested general class activities, and lists of objectives, materials, and activities for mathematics and science content. Some worksheets are also included with each session outline. An outline of the site facilitator's role is appended. Contains 34 references and a bibliography of 19 project-related publications. (MSE)
