Mathematics Teachers

                                                               

The math eWorkshops focus on teaching strategies for elementary and middle school math. eWorkshops include information on teaching specific mathematic content like ratio and proportions, numbers and operations, and fractions to grade level specific bands of multilingual students. 

These are the available eWorkshops:

Math Geometric Measurement (Grades 2-3)

Essential Question: How can I support multilingual students in learning the mathematical language and concepts of geometric measurement?

Guiding Questions:

  • Unit 1: What do I need to know about geometric measurement as described in the Common Core State Standards to be an effective teacher of multilingual students? What do my students know about geometric measurement?
  • Unit 2: What do my multilingual students already know about the everyday use of geometric measurement?
  • Unit 3: What is the language of geometric measurement that 3rd multilingual students need to know?
  • Unit 4: What strategies can I use to assess what my multilingual students know about geometric measurement
  • Unit 5: What do I need to do to improve my practice of teaching geometric measurement to multilingual learners
  • Unit 6: Answer the Essential Question
