Secondary Science Teaching for English Learners: Developing Supportive and Responsive Learning Contexts for Sense-Making and Language Development

This book focuses on the preparation of secondary science teachers to teach science to English Learners (EL) and is based on the SSTELLA (Secondary Science Education with English Language and Literacy Acquisition) project that has been implemented in four pre-service teacher education programs in Arizona, California and Texas, all states with large populations of EL. The project addresses two national priorities: 1) improving the preparation of teachers to work with the rapidly expanding population of EL; and 2) implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) (NRC 2012) and Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts (CCSS ELA) (CCSI, 2010).
