Language Central for Science helps ELLs and struggling students develop the academic vocabulary necessary to master Science. Often times it is the Science vocabulary, not the scientific concepts, which hinder student mastery. Language Central for Science is designed to directly address this issue – and to reinforce the instruction given in the science classroom.
helps ELL and struggling learners develop key academic science vocabulary
reinforces the core instruction given in the science classroom
provides reading, writing, speaking, and listening practice so students learn and apply academic vocabulary
“The goal of the program is to directly address the academic vocabulary issues that prevent students from focusing on the science concepts being taught... we’ve seen that often it was the language, not the science, holding them back.”
- Patti Aube, Science Coach
