22. Academic Language Scaffolds for English Learners in Math | Math Conference 2023

Speaking: Dr. Polly Treviño

In this session, we will learn methods for leveraging linguistic structure (e.g., morphology, semantics, syntax) to provide direct instruction in academic language to English learners in math. We will learn an evidence-based routine for introducing academic vocabulary. We will also explore how English morphology and syntax can be taught to support English learners' math content learning, vocabulary development, comprehension, and expression. Examples will feature math content from both primary and secondary grade levels.(Grades K - 12)
