Scientific Literacy for All.
Carlson, Cynthia
Science Teacher, v67 n3 p48-52 Mar 2000
Points out the difficulties that English language learners may have and advocates that teachers help students acquire academic scientific language from words that can mean different things in science and be confusing. Recommends using graphic organizers, providing vocabulary support, and pre-writing and reading activities as possible ways to help students acquire academic language. (YDS)
