The MPI: Language Function
Language Function
• Describes how language is used; not the cognitive
task
• Guides the language features that students should
recognize or be able to produce
• May be used across several different levels,
though the language features associated at
specific levels may be different

(Writing)
Explain and justify which scientific invention has been the
most useful by writing a comic to support your ideas
(i.e., next slide).
Standards Reference:
Framework: Summative
Standard 4: The language of Science
Science Standard: Grades (6-8):
Intro to Engineering Design Standard:
2.4 Advanced Designs (9-12)
Grade level cluster: 6-8
Language domain: Writing
English language proficiency level: 1- Entering
Example Topic: Scientific Inventions or discoveries
Comic Writing Activity
Students will choose an invention from the following
list, or one of their own they feel is the most
important. The students will then create a comic to
represent its importance. Students at level 1 may
not have many words in their comic, but they will be
able to express themselves through pictures. The
teacher may also help this process by asking
questions like, “What does this invention do?” “Has this invention helped anything else?” The
teacher may then go back and have them add words to their comics. Teachers may also
include words that describe inventions for the students to use in their comics.
1.Microscope 2. medicine 3. X-Ray machine
4. telescope 5. computers 6. the internet
7. plastic 8. airplanes 9. Cars 10.batteries
11. light bulb 12. electricity
Higher Level Thinking
Follow Up Activity
• The students will then have to research the invention they chose for
their comic and create and present a power point presentation that
defends why it is the most important scientific invention to their
classmates.
• The students could create an invention that would help solve a typical
teenager problem.
Debrief and Next Steps
• How would you share what you have gained
(process/product) with stake holders?
