Context of the Intervention Setting School Setting The specialized school where our project took place focuses on teenagers’ transition to the United States; 80% of students are refugees and 98% are on free- or reduced-lunch programs. To qualify for enrollment in the newcomer school, students must be of middle or high school age and receive composite scores of two or less on the World Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) English test. Students’ oral and written English have phonological, syntactic, or semantic errors that often impede communication, and explicit language strategies are essential for them to both comprehend the science and to communicate that comprehension.

Thus, an instructional approach is needed to enable newcomer ELs to first access foundational understandings of the relevant science in order to best leverage the immersive planetarium experience for integrating the new science understandings into their mental schemas. Accessing scientific concepts through visualizations in classroombased instruction that is synergistic with the immersive planetarium visualizations offered multiple routes to scientific understanding. , Cavallo & Gomez, 2010; Gersten & Baker, 2000; Goldenberg, 2008).
