Course Title : ESOL Earth Systems
Course Description : A Choice Science taken by many ESOL students in grades 10-12 , Earth Systems Science is designed to continue student investigations that began in K-8 Earth Science and Life Science curricula and investigate the connections among Earth ’ s systems through Earth history . These systems – the atmosphere , hydrosphere , geosphere , and biosphere – interact through time to produce the Earth ’ s landscapes , ecology , and resources . This course develops the explanations of phenomena fundamental to the sciences of geology and physical geography , including the early history of the Earth , plate tectonics , landform evolution , the Earth ’ s geologic record , weather and climate , and the history of life on Earth . Instruction should focus on inquiry and development of scientific explanations , rather than mere descriptions of phenomena . Case studies , laboratory exercises , maps , and data analysis should be integrated into units . Special attention should be paid to topics of current interest ( e . g ., recent earthquakes , tsunamis , global warming , price of resources ) and to potential careers in the geosciences .
Core ESOL classes such as this one are taught via one of two models : 1 .) In a sheltered class model , the class ( size limited to a maximum set by the state ) is composed solely of ELLs and taught by a teacher who holds the content area certification as well as the ESOL Endorsement or ESOL ( P-12 ) certification . 2 .) In a Push-in model – students receive content instruction from a teacher certified in that content area with a collaborating ESOL certified teacher who provides language assistance for ELLs in the class . The curriculum follows the GPS of the general education content course but integrates the WIDA Standards and differentiates instruction and tasks to accommodate second language learners .
A Composite Proficiency Level of 3 or higher with a strong proficiency score in Reading , is suggested for ELLs taking content area classes . English Language Learners ( ELLs ) are likely to experience success on the End-of-Course-Tests if they have an ACCESS for ELLS Composite Proficiency Level ( CPL ) of 4.3 – 4.8 combined with a strong Reading proficiency score .
Pre-Requisite : Typically the completion of Biology , but exceptions are made .
