Ladybugs, Tornadoes, and Swirling Galaxies

English language learners discover their world

This engaging resource illustrates ways to blend comprehension instruction and ELL best practices to explore inquiry as a literacy pathway for English language learners.

As teachers and students engage in learning science and social studies content they also discover multiple ways to make meaning. The book is full of photographs of student artwork, including a color insert, that reveals the children`s inquiry process, and demonstrates the important role of art as a sign system in ELL literacy and language acquisition. Step-by-step strategies cover everything from personal narrative through independent inquiry.
