AIAN - The language is specialized - lots of technical terms!

- PASSIVE VOICE is omnipresent

- Program is overloaded; content is viewed very quickly

- Other Challenges... BOOKS

- Zeman, A., & Kelly, K. (2011). Everything you need to know about science homework. (3rd ed.). New York: Scholastic Inc. - Learning Latin and Greek roots will SOLIDIFY new technical academic vocabulary acquisition. and will enable some ELL students to MAKE CONNECTIONS to their primary language.

- Having students use (e)Portfolios will make them aware of their own progress regarding science content and language WEB


https://www.msu.edu/defores1/gre/roots/gre_rts_afx2.htm - English texts are packed with idioms, figurative language, imagery, and symbolism

- Old English, British, American, Irish, Australian are all various types of English which LA teachers use for reading

- English overflows with unfamiliar vocabulary, homonyms, homophones, and synonyms - Prereading: The more the details in the prediction process, the more information there is to compare and contrast with the story.

- Reading: Think-alouds allows teachers to observe how students organize their thoughts during reading.

- Writing: One of the most difficult language skills to master, writing will strengthen grammar and the other language skills. JOURNAL ARTICLE
