This book focuses on ways to tailor instruction to capitalize on the strengths of each ELL while aligning teaching and learning with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. It explores some of the ways in which high school mathematics content can be made accessible to ELLs by
building on the strengths that they bring to the classroom and scaffolding their opportunities to learn.
Chapters describe specific lessons and instructional moves that teachers can make that will not only support their students in learning mathematical content but also build their understanding of associated English structures. Reflection Questions and Action Plans are included for the use of
practicing teachers, preservice teachers, graduate students, academics, researchers, and professional development providers.
This book is one of four in the Common Core State Standards for English Language Learners Series, edited by Luciana C. de Oliveira. The series focuses on tailoring instruction for ELLs while aligning it with the Common Core State Standards. Two volumes address the Common Core State
