Bring Your Newcomer, SIFE, and Multilingual Students Up to Grade Level in High School Math & Science
Multilingual High SchoolSM is an academic language learning program for Newcomer, SIFE, and Multilingual students in grades 9 & up. It supplements math and science courses at secondary grade levels that are required for graduation.
This spiral learning program consists of independent practice activities and teaching tools designed to accelerate mastery of key STEM concepts and content knowledge, modeling and reasoning skills, and STEM communication, especially for students who may lack background knowledge. The academic language is content-based and aligned to CCSS, NGSS, NGSSS, WIDA, TEKS, among other academic standards. It can be aligned to your state standards as well.
Each digital module spirals in a three-step learning progression:
- Level One uses visual aids to introduce key concepts and foundational vocabulary. It engages students in listening, speaking, and morphology practice.
- Level Two uses simplified but age-appropriate, interactive stories, texts, and videos to build background knowledge and make connections to the real world.
- Level Three uses reading and writing activities with leveled, accessible texts to deepen content knowledge and have students demonstrate their reasoning.
