How can we encourage academic language input and output through Math content?

In this session, ESL Specialist Faith Foster and Math Specialist Arash Abnoussi join forces to show how math talk empowers all voices for understanding both language and content.

Join our dynamic session where we merge the power of Content-Based Language Instruction (CBLI) with mathematics education. In this session, we'll delve into innovative approaches for integrating CBLI principles with math content, promoting effective language development while building strong mathematical foundations. Participants will learn how to make math concepts more accessible to Emergent Bilingual students, bridging the gap between language proficiency and mathematical fluency. This session offers educators valuable insights and practical tools to help students excel in both language acquisition and mathematical problem-solving. Don't miss this opportunity to transform your math instruction and empower all learners!
