The Mathematics Specialist From a Dual Language Immersion Perspective


A teacher leader describes the use of specific materials and lesson plans to promote language accessibility, cultural relevance, enhanced thinking, and discourse in the mathematics class of a dual language immersion program. Through a diverse collection of strategies, materials, and technology, the specific needs of the second language math student are addressed. The lessons are based on an integrated approach where vocabulary and materials are carefully chosen and adapted in order to provide comprehensible input. These activities are student-centered, hands-on experiences that enhance students' thinking skills.
