Register for Supporting English Learners in Mathematics, May 29-31, in Phoenix, Arizona

Leading with Learning

Ready to dive deeper into addressing how to teach mathematics and English language development in tandem?

Student success in mathematics has shifted from solely being able to “solve the problem correctly” to being able to explain mathematical thinking and reasoning in both spoken and written English.

This three-day intensive summer institute focuses on deepening understanding of the components of high-quality instruction that integrates the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, the Standards for Mathematical Practice and the English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards so that all students can experience success in developing conceptual knowledge and the English language simultaneously.

The learning is designed to ensure that all students develop academic literacy, analytical practices, and deep content understanding in mathematics.

Who Will Benefit

  • School and district teams of teacher and teacher leaders
  • Instructional coaches and principals
  • District and county office leaders
  • Teacher education faculty

What You Will Learn

The institute will focus on strengthening teaching and learning in four major areas:

  • Fostering collaborative academic conversations among students, abundant writing, and interactive reading around complex texts and intellectually challenging content
  • Observing students closely to provide both planned and just-in-time scaffolding
  • Building disciplinary literacy by engaging students in text-oriented talk about the language in complex texts
  • Creating positive and culturally responsive learning environments

Participants will engage in collaborative, interactive tasks:

  • Discussing key readings, including those related to culturally responsive teaching
  • Participating in and analyzing standards-based model lessons
  • Developing new ideas about scaffolding student learning, formative assessment, equity and positive learning environments
