Do word problems and math vocabulary confuse students in your
mathematics classes? Do simple keywords like "value" and "portion"
seem to mislead them? Many words that students already know can
have a different meaning in mathematics. To grasp that difference,
students need to connect English literacy skills to math.
Successful students speak, read, write, and listen to each other so
they can understand, retain, and apply mathematics concepts. This
book explains how to use 10 classroom-ready literacy strategies in
concert with your mathematics instruction. You ll learn how to
develop students who are able to explain to themselves - and
communicate to others - what problems mean and how to attack them.
Embedding these strategies in your instruction will help your
students gain the literacy skills required to achieve the eight
Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. You ll discover the
best answer to their question, "When am I ever going to use this?"
The 10 Strategies: 1. Teaching mathematical words explicitly 2.
Teaching academic words implicitly 3. Reinforcing reading
comprehension skills that apply to mathematics 4. Teaching
mathematics with metaphor and gesture 5. Unlocking the meaning of
word problems 6. Teaching note-taking skills for mathematics 7.
Using language-based formative assessment in mathematics 8.
Connecting memorization to meaning in mathematics 9. Incorporating
writing-to-learn activities in mathematics 10. Preparing students
for algebraic thinking"
