  • Various means of demonstrating understanding of academic concepts that are not language dependent
  • Comprehensible input for processing language
  • Opportunities to be active participants in hands-on ;earning
  • Tools for engaging in higher-order thinking
  • Tools for organizing and integrating language and content
  • Validation or confirmation of what they know and are able to do
