English learners (ELs) bring a wealth of ideas, perspectives, and solutions to STEM education. However, according to a report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (2018), the nearly 5 million students classified as ELs in public schools are falling behind when it comes to STEM education. Particularly, as it relates to learning science and mathematics, ELs lack opportunities to engage with challenging disciplinary practices and content. Preparing teachers so that all students can reach their full potential in STEM can transform the lives of individual students and society as a whole. Join us on Saturday, May 4th, starting at 10 am Eastern, to learn strategies teachers can use to enhance the classroom experience of ELs in STEM subjects.
