In fall of 2006, the Texas Comprehensive Center led a professional development session for mathematics and ESL specialists from the 20 Texas education service centers (ESCs). During the session, entitled Strategies for English Language Learners in Secondary Mathematics, practical ideas were collected and converted into an online interactive document. The strategies that were derived take into account a student’s English language proficiency level, in order to improve the students’ mathematics comprehension.
The document is divided into three sections:
- Levels of Student Language Proficiency
- Key Components of Successful Strategies for ELLs in Secondary Math
