So many times our ELs score low in math and it’s because they still struggle with the language of math. This workshop focuses on how to best help our ELs during math time. We will focus on the process standards, language of math, and problem solving to help our ELs. The goal is not just computation, but to understand conceptually what we are doing in math. This will be a full day, virtual session.
