"Teaching Science to English Language Learners is a good combination of theoretical background and practical ideas that will serve science teachers well!As the United States becomes increasingly diverse, it is important that science teachers have the knowledge and skills to meet the needs of all students. Teaching Science to English Language Learners provides an important piece of this knowledge by effectively bringing together and contextualizing key principles that must be considered when teaching science to ELLs."--Teachers College Record
