The Understanding Language team at Stanford University has just released its first major collection of common core instructional resources in math meant for teachers who work with English-language learners.
A team of experts, including Judit Moschkovich, a professor of mathematics education at the University of California, Santa Cruz, used or adapted tasks from two series of curricula: Inside Mathematics and the Mathematics Assessment Project. Each lesson in the package includes detailed notes on how teachers can use them in classrooms with English-learners.
The aim behind these materials is to help teachers see how math tasks rooted in the common core can be used to support both math learning and language development. The four lessons cover elementary, middle, and high school math.
