The Language of Math: the Common Core and English-Learners
Friday January 16th, 12 to 1 p.m. Eastern
With their heightened emphasis on verbal explication and argumentation, the Common Core State Standards for mathematics pose unique challenges for students not fully proficient in English.
In this webinar from Education Week, two experts in math instruction for English-language learners will explore the linguistic demands of the new standards and offer strategies to help math educators better support ELLs in developing and communicating mathematical reasoning. The discussion will address scaffolding techniques, profession-development needs, and resource options.
Underwriting for the content for this webinar has been provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
