How can you support your EAL students in the Science classroom to ensure successful outcomes for all? What does collaboration between content area teachers and EAL specialists look like? How do you have time to meet and plan and what help do you need from administration to run a standalone Science for EAL students class? Is collaboration in a co-teaching structure successful for both students and teachers?

We will introduce our new initiative including a Grade 9 sheltered science class for EAL students and how we will attain our goal, which is the success of EAL students through facilitating and encouraging their learning beyond the mainstream classroom.

How was it possible to plan an additional standalone class with co-teaching between Science and EAL teachers? What does the class look like day to day? Are EAL students being sufficiently supported at your school? Would co-teaching be an effective strategy at your school? Can you shift towards greater collaboration?
