NGSS Science and Engineering Practices

1. Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)
2. Developing and using models
3. Planning and carrying out investigations
4. Analyzing and interpreting data
5. Using mathematics and computational thinking
6. Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering)
7. Engaging in argument from evidence
8. Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information.
~ Look at all the practices that require Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing.
These are all key components of a strong language program, and of particular importance, work with ELLs.
