STEM strategies for English Language Learner (ELL) students with disabilities include learning centers, instructional games, and techniques to develop conversational language, academic language, scaffolding, concrete materials, and visual learning. Teachers can use these techniques to provide best practices in math and science instruction integrated with modifications for teaching ELL studcnts with disabilities. These strategies utilize technology as well as the science, math, and problem solving of engineering to improve the education of English learners.
