This mini-webinar will give a quick overview of the popular Mathematical Language Routines you’ve been hearing about. As in other subjects, math students must be able to read, write, listen, speak, and discuss the subject at hand. Often, these multimodal ways of learning and using math skills are given too little attention in curricular materials, and teachers may want to supplement with classroom activities that provide opportunities for students to use language to discuss the math content they’re learning. Viewers will get a quick look at some of the supplementary routines and how to integrate them into grade-level work. These routines benefit ALL students, but are particularly helpful for English Language Learners or those struggling with the linguistic components of math.
