Description
Description
An interactive presentation offering tools to teachers who are adapting their lessons to fit the needs of language learners in Science. The presentation aims to explore the benefits of a genre-based pedagogy to promote the teaching of text in context. Together we will explore the concept of the “Genre Egg” as a metalanguage and a tool to dissect language learning tasks in teaching Science concepts. We will discuss how an increased awareness of the disciplinary language for content teachers can promote an integrative approach to teaching language in Science. 

Audience: Secondary Science Teachers, ELL teachers, Resource Teachers

Presenter(s): Dr. Nikta Razavi
Nikta Razavi has taught high school science and college preparatory ELL courses. With a bachelor's in Science and a master's in TESOL, she has combined her background in teaching science and language to design and deliver curricula for senior-level students in transitional or adapted Science. This project led her to conducting research and completing a PhD in Education to explore pedagogies in integrative content-based language instruction. Her passion lies in developing rigorous and relevant curricula for content teachers whose students are learning subject matter knowledge and language simultaneously. In her professional development workshops, she focuses on the question of how ELL students can master science literacy, communicative literacies, and knowledge-based critical reasoning skills without simplifying the curriculum.
