Embracing new ways of teaching science and language with English learners
from Education DIVE
In December, New York adopted new science learning standards, modeled closely on the Next Generation Science Standards. Among those students learning science through these new standards will be New York's 240,000 English learners — nearly 9 percent of the student population. Student demographics across the U.S. are changing, and English learners make up a fast-growing subset of the student population. For the 2013-2014 school year, the latest available information, English learners constituted nearly 10 percent of public school students, or an estimated 4.5 million students.
