Visual Access to Mathematics: Supporting Teachers of English Learners

NSF Awards: 1503057

2016 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6, Grades 6-8

Visual Access to Mathematics is a professional development course to support teachers of English learners (ELs). This video provides an overview of core design principles behind this hybrid online and face-to-face course that focuses on building understanding of the use of visual representations for rational number and ratio and proportion problem-solving. In the course, teachers explore their own use of visual representations and also analyze both paper-and-pencil and online/dynamic artifacts of ELs’ mathematical thinking and communication. Strategies for supporting language access and language production and how they can be integrated with the use of visual representations are introduced during the course. The course is currently under development with field-testing taking place in New England. This video showcases key activities, components, and principles from the design of this course to support mathematics teachers of ELs.
