Integrated ELD Instruction in Math
Create an integrated unit plan that incorporates English Language Development (ELD) strategies focused on academic language, vocabulary development, and listening and speaking in K-6 mathematics.
In this course, you will learn ways to effectively integrate the California ELD (English Language Development) standards into mathematical instruction in the elementary classroom. You will begin by reviewing the language demands of mathematical instruction, as well as exploring the areas of strength and needs of English Language Learners in your school/district.
You will then be presented with a variety of strategies to integrate language, vocabulary, speaking and listening into your K-6 mathematics instruction. At the end of this course, you will be asked to design and present an integrated ELD math unit plan that demonstrates your understanding of the instructional strategies presented in this course.Register Now
