Teaching English using Science Content
Science articles can be used as authentic sources in content-based instruction to teach English Language Learners (ELLs). For this purpose, I have created materials for teaching English in a scientific context. Select Science Niblets articles have been supplemented with relevant activities and additional authentic materials that encourage intercultural discussion and the use of the four receptive and productive language skills: reading, listening, writing and speaking. The theoretical and pedagogical framework that underlie the materials are explained in the teachers' guide. The materials themselves consist of a lesson plan for the teacher and a learner worksheet that are printable pdf files. These materials are available in the menu on the left.
