Lift Up English Language Learners With Quality Math Instruction

Friday February 3, 2023
9:00 - 10:30 AM
Virtual Workshop Room 1

It is easy to assume that English Language Learners will excel in math because math is a “universal language.” We tend to think of math as a subject that does not require a strong command of language. However, using math vocabulary, solving word problems, and understanding mathematical reasoning are closely linked to language. In this session, participants will take away effective strategies to teach academic vocabulary, help students understand written math problems, and increase student language production. These strategies can be applied through in-person or virtual teaching methods. All teachers have the responsibility and opportunity to help their English Language Learners learn the English language. Let’s lift up all our English Language Learners with quality math instruction!
