Supporting English Learners in Math
English learners need ongoing and explicit language instruction to access mathematical content. This course focuses on the types of support needed for English learners to be successful in mathematics. Participants gain the understanding and skills required to design lessons that increase English proficiency while simultaneously developing mathematical understanding as they analyze lessons designed for English learners. As the sessions build, participants learn how to use, and experience the benefits of, a lesson design process that supports differentiation for the varied levels of English learners in classrooms.
