Handheld translator

Universally Relevant
An English language learner uses a handheld translator to respond to the genetic engineering "who cares?" challenge. Teacher Carrie Brewington says, "[The idea of careers] is universal. Everybody’s going to need to move on from school, whether it’s post-secondary or it’s the workforce. And this really makes it relevant to the ESL learners that come into my classroom. They have the same questions as everyone else: 'Why is biology important?' "
