Middle Grades Mathematics Lessons for Multilingual Learners
This video highlights how features including diagrams and supports for language access and language production can be built into middle grades mathematics lessons to strengthen the learning experience for emergent multilingual learners (i.e., students identified as English learners by their schools). We developed and studied Grade 6 fraction division lessons that incorporate these features (see http://go.edc.org/adsel) in collaboration with over 30 teachers. This video shares key implications for supporting student participation and learning in mathematics class, and includes the perspectives of some of the teachers who collaborated in this work on how these features supported their students.
