  • A Framework for K-12 Science Education (National Research Council, 2012) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) offer a vision of rigorous standards across K-12 classrooms. As these standards offer both learning opportunities and demands, educators must enact instructional shifts to achieve the vision. This session highlights how science instructional shifts, based on the vision of the NGSS, and language instructional shifts, based on contemporary thinking in second language acquisition, are mutually supportive in promoting both science and language learning for all students. Using examples from science curriculum materials and classroom instruction, the session will highlight what educators can do to ensure all students are supported in learning science while developing language. The session will conclude with how science education is connected to English language arts and English language education.
