Cutting to the Common Core: Mathematically speaking
from Language Magazine
Developing mathematics instruction for English language learners that is aligned with the Common Core State Standards can be achieved through research-based teaching practices that often run counter to commonsense notions of language and mathematics. This article outlines recommendations that are motivated by a commitment to improving mathematics learning through language for all students and especially for students who are learning English; they are not intended as recipes or quick fixes, but rather as principles to help guide teachers, curriculum developers, and teacher educators in developing their own approaches to supporting mathematical reasoning and sense-making for students who are learning English.
