Support Multilingual Learners in Science Learning

Making Science Multilingual, a joint program with WIDA and the National Science Teaching Association (NSTA), has released a working paper titled Design Principles for Engaging Multilingual Learners in Three-Dimensional Science.

In this paper, the Making Science Multilingual team devised eight design principles to define the integration of contemporary three-dimensional science and language-in-use pedagogies. These principles will guide educator resource development at both organizations and facilitate critical examination of how well educator resources support inclusion of multilingual learners in rigorous science learning. The full working paper is available through the link above, or by visiting the WIDA Resource Library.
