Family Gardens and Solar Ovens: Making Science Education Accessible to Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students

Describes the Bilingual Integrated Curriculum Project (BICOMP), an approach to multicultural science education that uses activities that minority communities are familiar with and feel comfortable with as the basis for teaching English and grade-level concepts as parents share traditional knowledge and primary language skills. Examples illustrate the sheltered constructivist approach of BICOMP. (SLD)
