This list of ELL resources is a working document prepared by CADRE for the ELL Working Group. New resources will be added as they are identified. This list includes the citation and the article abstract. Please do not circulate or quote this list of resources. Sources are organized alphabetically by STEM Content area (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), and by the general education topic explored in the paper (assessment, curriculum, instruction, language, professional development, system/policy, technology, and writing).
This tool is a collection of instruments created for ELL by DR K-12 grantees.
To investigate the contribution of the DR K‐12 portfolio to the knowledge base on math and sciencelearning among ELLs, CADRE designed a study to explore the ELL work that is being conducted in theDR K‐12 projects. This paper summarizes the work of this study. It begins with a description of themethodology employed, followed by a presentation of the findings, and finally a discussion of theconclusions drawn from this work.
Three ELL-focused projects will describe their work in light of cross-project challenges.
The purpose of this session is to share information about three of the projects involved in the CADRE working group for English language learners (ELLs) and STEM. The first project, Project MSSELL (Middle School Science for English Language Learners), will report on a two-year randomized-trial longitudinal study and the effectiveness of instructional interventions in academic science among ELLs and non-ELLs matriculating through grades 5 and 6 with comparison to the typical science instruction in an urban school district in Southeast Texas.
Resources mentioned during the presentation:
- Carnegie Mellon University Language Technologies Institute, REAP algorithm- http://www.lti.cs.cmu.edu/Research/tech-reports.html
- Texas A & M Language Diversity Network: http://ldn.tamu.edu
- Transitional Bilingual Observation Protocol (TBOP)
Open to all grantees
Participants will discuss their project work in relation to current literature in ELL math and science education and the DR K-12 portfolio, as well as challenges faced in their projects. If appropriate, they will begin to develop policy recommendations for the NSF.
This group met first at the 2009 PI meeting, and this session is the continuation of the group interactions. However, the session is open to others who are interested in participating. The session will begin with a presentation of the ELL synthesis study conducted by CADRE partner, Abt Associates. The study involves an in-depth analysis of the DRK-12 portfolio on ELL students in math and science education and a comprehensive review of the literature. This information will serve as the foundation for a discussion to be facilitated by Okhee Lee.
This document includes ELL science and math education-related presentations at popular education conferences taking place between March and December 2010. This document will be periodically updated by CADRE staff.
