Discover the deep and natural connections between language and science, and between English language arts and the Next Generation Science Standards. In this webinar, we’ll explore ways to make the most of these natural connections by integrating active reading and comprehension strategies into the flow of science learning as well as listening, speaking, and writing. We’ll also explore techniques for supporting English learners in processing science text. The webinar will feature practices, approaches, and strategies you’ll be able to use tomorrow morning.
