English Learners exist on a two-dimensional linguistic level: native-language and English with a wide variance in proficiency levels. All classrooms contain students at various skill levels, but ELs rarely receive personalized scaffolding for language learning curricula. This session will describe a National Science Foundation (NSF)-backed innovation supporting student participation in class activities by giving them the technological tools to understand tasks through sentence frames assigned regardless of their English/native ability proficiency. Examples will be shared.
