Published on

To achieve academic success in mathematics, English language learners, like English-dominant peers, must use the language of mathematics to communicate core concepts and reason mathematically. Linking university initiatives with K-12 schools, presenters discuss mathematics standards and cognitive academic language development using examples of effective classroom practice.

  • Colleagues and I developed a course to address the fact that teachers involved in the teaching of STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) increasingly find themselves in multicultural classrooms with English Language Learners (ELLs). These teachers are in need of employing a variety of strategies to help all of their students acquire the material. By focusing on different learning styles, today’s mathematics educators must be able to address their students’ cultural differences, divergent language abilities, ethnicity, social and economic status as well as physical and psychological differences. In the course students become familiar with the foundations of second language acquisition as related to mathematics. This enables them to integrate the acquisition of mathematics concepts with English language development and come to understand the contextual, social, and linguistic factors, which influence the successful learning of mathematics. As a result the students will better comprehend the concepts of language and content objectives, when designing a mathematics curriculum for ELLs. This course emphasizes how to promote equity in schooling, as teaching mathematics to ELLs also provides alternative access to mathematics content for to all students in a classroom. The forum is for educators interested in the effects of language acquisition, instructional strategies, and culture in the teaching and learning of mathematics concepts.
  • The teachers claim that planning PERC lessons forces them to focus on the students. They express surprise and chagrin as they reflect on how much their previous planning revolved around themselves and what they would say rather than their students and how they would learn.
  • Foundational priorities are Curriculum, Instruction, and assessment; equity; advocacy; professional development, and research.
  • Teaching Tips contains a variety of tips for teachers that get updated monthlyFamily Resources includes suggestions on helping children learn math and homework help
  • Figure this contains a variety of resources, including hints for teachers and families and math challenges for students. The materials are in both English and Spanish.
  • Illuminations provides standards-based activities, lessons, and interactives for teaching mathematics. It also contains Calculation Nation, a set of highly engaging online math games.
  • This could be used with intermediate students
