Using this practical tool, teachers can accelerate English language learners’ (ELLs’) acquisition of academic English and proficiency in meaningful mathematics.

Making Math Accessible for English Language Learners provides classroom tips and suggestions to strengthen the quality of classroom instruction for teachers. These are based on research in practices and strategies that address the affective, linguistic, and cognitive needs of ELLs. Although the book centers on teaching ELLs, many of the tips and suggestions benefit all students. The book follows case studies of composite student profiles. Throughout the book, readers will find opportunities for reflection to increase personal awareness of both the teacher’s role and students’ needs. Tasks provide interaction with the content of the book, and hot tips inspire ideas for real-world situations.
