California Program Blends Science Curriculum Into ELL Instruction

Education Week (3/27, Fleming) profiles "a federally funded collaborative project between the 4,600-student Sonoma district and the Exploratorium, a science museum in San Francisco. ... As the release of the Next Generation Science Standards draws near, hands-on, inquiry-based methods of science instruction like those taught in Sonoma are becoming more common. Yet its use of science to teach English is a novel approach-one that offers significant potential for other districts to replicate, some educators say, especially as the number of English-language learners rises."
