Abstract

Los Científicos (The Scientists) is a completely bilingual program created by bilingual teachers for bilingual teachers and students from 3rd to 5th grade that is currently being used in elementary schools in Texas and New Mexico. The key element of this system is its multimedia approach to learning. This system was specifically created for English Language Learners (ELL) and for that reason it combines audio, video, pictures, and written material using a variety of media for delivery, (DVDs, PDFs, Internet, Paper, iPods, etc.) with the concrete goal of creating a wider approach to all the different learning styles. This includes a combination of visuals, multiple forms of non-linguistic representations, word pronunciation, hands-on activities, experiments, classroom games, and online games in order to facilitate comprehension and retention of new concepts.
