C I 5320 - Teaching Mathematics to Emergent Bilinguals Learners (3)

When Offered: Summer Session
The purpose of this course is to prepare preservice and in-service teachers, and other teaching professionals, to teach mathematics to students learning English as an additional language, as well as children who are multilingual, immigrants, or refugees. The course is designed to prepare teachers to teach K-8 students with linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds. The term emergent bilingual (EB) is used broadly to incorporate children who are formally identified as English learners along with children who can speak and/or comprehend more than one language. The course will help teachers understand the needs of emergent bilingual students, learn to use students’ language and culture as a resource in mathematics classrooms, and implement research-based instructional strategies that are effective in teaching mathematics to these learners.
