SCE3310_3.0

ESOL Performance Standard(s) and Indicator(s)2.1, 3.2, 4.1
Activity ObjectiveCandidates will evaluate two elementary science textbooks.
Activity DescriptionCandidates analyze and evaluate two elementary science textbooks. Textbooks are available from the Curriculum and Materials Center. Candidates will identify if the textbook provides native-language support (translated editions, etc.) Candidates will also provide a list of accommodations that can be utilized to help beginning, intermediate, and advanced ELs access the content of the textbook. Accommodations must be differentiated between proficiency levels. Candidates will also provide a sample vocabulary list for one chapter to indicate their ability to identify language that is important to the topic and to discuss the topic.
