In this session, presenters from Casco Bay High School, an English-language education school with a curricular model based around learning expeditions, will share their collaborative practices and strategies used to design differentiated science curricula—with a focus on students who are learning English as an additional language.

Presenters will share their work on the expedition “The Air Up There,” in which chemistry students learned about climate change and impact of gases in the atmosphere, as a case study for collaboration between ELL specialists and STEM teachers. Presenters will share their best practices for differentiation and "amplifying" academic language to ensure that culturally and linguistically diverse learners can meaningfully access content instruction.

Participants will have the opportunity to identify the language demands associated with their curricula, learn concrete differentiation strategies, and consider their own collaborative practice. This session is recommended for any content teacher interested in better serving culturally and linguistically diverse students.
