Integrated Assessments for ELL
Armon, Joan; Morris, Linda J.
Science and Children, v45 n8 p49-53 Apr 2008
Despite the challenges posed by increased time, specialized vocabularies, and balance, integrating writing and drawing with science investigations is beneficial for teachers and students. This month's column explains why this integrated approach is beneficial, and illustrates how teachers can use it to meet the needs of students learning English and guide teaching. It concludes by noting some of the difficulties posed by integration and offers some recommendations. (Contains 3 figures and 11 resources.)
