How can we teach science to English language learners (ELLs) when even our native English speakers have trouble reading the textbook? To help science teachers meet this challenge, this article presents six text-comprehension strategies used by English for Speakers of other Languages (ESOL) teachers: metalinguistic awareness development, classification activities, semantic webs, visualization, learning logs, and key-points reviews. (Contains 7 figures.)
