|Abstract:||Despite extensive research and national reports that call for students' engagement in scientific practices, these strategies continue to be virtually absent in classrooms throughout the U.S. Thus, the question of how students who are learning English as a second language fare in these environments is virtually unanswered. This study presents results from an investigation on 3rd grade emerging bilingual students' participation in a physics lesson on sound production. We focus on the changes in participation as such changes pertain to scientific practices of argumentation, modeling, and experiential, imaginative, and mechanistic reasoning strategies. Drawing from students' discourse and gestures, conjectures are made about scientific practices being particularly well suited for fostering productive disciplinary engagement for emerging bilingual students.|
