ABSTRACT
The article discusses methods to improve the effectiveness of science education for English language learners (ELLs). The authors suggest that science curricula have clear goals and that lesson plans include clear instructions to assist ELLs. They recommend the use of teaching devices such as visual aids and an emphasis on student experiences to help convey information to students. They also suggest experiential learning can help ELLs understand science terminology.
