The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are being implemented in the context of increasing student diversity in the nation. In particular, the NGSS present opportunities and demands for a rapidly growing population of English learners, who are learning science while developing proficiency in English. As science and language are integrally related and mutually supportive of each other, this session will address how to design science instruction that incorporates formative assessment of science and language with all students including English learners. After engaging in a science investigation, participants will assess student artifacts in terms of both science and language and consider how to use the assessment to inform instructional next steps.
