The Region XI California Mathematics Network is pleased to offer three-day mathematics workshops: Teaching Common Core Mathematics to English Learners developed through a partnership between ELD and Math specialists. Two workshops are offered: one for K-5 and the other for 6-12 mathematics teachers, coaches, leaders and ELD Specialists. These professional learning sessions provide participants with effective research-based strategies that ensure access to standards-based mathematic for all students, including, English Learners and students with disabilities. Explicit connections are made to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice and the Framework for English Language Proficiency Standards, while promoting the 21st Century skills of communication, critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration.

  • Understand the Standards for Mathematical Practice for teaching English Learners.
  • Build connections between prior knowledge and mathematics standards.
  • Use multiple representations to foster comprehension.
  • Discuss academic discourse as a tool for learning mathematical content.
  • Make use of language development performance indicators corresponding to the SMP to differentiate mathematics instruction.
  • Reflect on language barriers affecting the learning of mathematics for Standard English learners.

 

Each institute is limited to 25 participants so please apply early!
