Did you know that according to the Common Core Math Standards “students are required to justify their conclusions, communicate them to others, and respond to the arguments of others” ? For math teachers of English language learners, there is often a struggle to balance the math conceptual understanding with the English language development. In this webinar participants will gain strategies on how to integrate the California ELD standards with the Common Core Math Standards.
Participants will also have the opportunity to dive in deeper after the webinar through Brandman’s Directed Study course “Integrated ELD Instruction in Math .” Through a grant, the first twenty-five individuals w ho register for the course will be able to participate in the professional learning at no cost, usually $400 per participant. To be eligible, participants must register and attend the live webinar. At the end of the webinar, we will provide the link to enroll in the course.*In this webinar we will focus on:
- Examining the language demands of math instruction
- Incorporating the California ELD standards into math instruction
- Integrating language, vocabulary, speaking and listening into your Pre K-6 math instruction
*This event is hosted by Brandman University and made possible through a generous grant from the Better Together CA Teachers Summit.
