Developing Language for Learning in Mathematics

This eWorkshop helps educators recognize and design mathematics instruction that simultaneously strengthens both mathematical reasoning and language development for multilingual learners. Participants will engage in approximately four hours of self-paced learning.

During the eWorkshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the benefits of giving students meaningful math tasks, time for reasoning together, and support for their engagement in math discourse. Participants will see and have opportunities to plan ways to support multilingual learners in becoming increasingly effective as they use language to express their own ideas and co-construct ideas with others.

Format: All materials will be housed in the WIDA eLearning Center, which can be accessed by participants with a WIDA Secure Portal login.

Time to Complete: 4 hours

Audience: Educators who teach mathematics or support English language development in mathematics
