I was wondering if anyone has any advice or experience with teaching sciences (specifically Biology) to ESL students. I am currently in an ESL program, and I understand that I may encounter students who have limited English proficiency. I am just trying to wrap my head around teaching difficult concepts to students who speak no or little English. Thanks!
Although you are teaching older students, don't be afraid to use children's science trade books to at least introduce vocabulary. I am blessed to live near my metropolitan library where there is a wonderful children's section and staff to accompany it. The staff has eagerly helped me find appropriate selections that, consequently, are not "childish."
