Developing High-Performing English Learners in the Common Core Mathematics Classroom

Understand the language demands of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM), and explore scaffolds and instructional strategies that are designed to create independent English learners (ELs) who are college and career ready.


By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the language demands and challenges of the CCSSM.
  • Recognize and describe the cultural and linguistic demands of a performance task using the Ten Key Points.
  • Plan and modify a lesson to include the Five Essential Practices to support the language and content of the CCSSM.
  • Acquire strategies to support EL students with the challenges of the CCSSM performance tasks.
