Every science assessment is also an assessment of language. In this session, participants will learn about science classroom assessment design principles that support linguistically equitable tasks. Participants will have the chance to work in small groups to modify a sample task using the Science Assessment for Emergent Bilingual Learners (SAEBL) checklist in this interactive workshop. Presenters will also share how a teacher-researcher collaborative is working to make this a reality as well as opportunities and challenges they have encountered along the way.
