Please join us for an interactive discussion of design principles for engaging English learners in science with examples from Earth, space, and physical science resources for grades 6–12, produced through GBH’s Bringing the Universe to America's Classrooms project, in collaboration with NASA*.  The collection contains resources related to waves, Earth’s systems, weather and climate, history of Earth, and space. The types of resources available in the collection include animated videos, data visualizations, images and video from NASA, interactives, and more.  Everything is standards-aligned and fully supported for classroom use.  

GBH Teacher Advisors will share ideas of how to use the resources to provide rich and equitable science instruction for the English learners in your classroom.

The on-demand recording link will be sent to all registrants. A Certificate of Completion is available for those who attend the livestream and complete a brief survey.
