Connecting Literacy and Science to Increase Achievement for English Language Learners
Huerta, Margarita; Jackson, Julie
Early Childhood Education Journal, v38 n3 p205-211 Oct 2010
Giving students a purpose and a passion for sharing their thinking through authentic learning experiences and giving them tools for writing through which they can risk new vocabulary, new language, and new thought is critical for the linguistic and cognitive development of students. Furthermore, students develop a deep understanding of content they have heard and read when given time to process information through writing and speaking. This article describes one teacher's quest to identify and implement effective research-based instructional strategies that she could use to successfully support her kindergarten ELL students during science instruction.
