Writing can be a powerful tool for both teachers and students in the mathematics classroom. Under Hallmark Three of Advanced Literacies Instruction Nonie Lesaux discusses the importance for writing to promote learners’ language and cognitive skills with a structured, content-based approach to all writing assignments and tasks. When students write in mathematics, they practice using metacognition, precise mathematical language, argument development, and reflective practices. So, how can educators support Els’ productive engagement and participation in mathematical discussions through writing? How do educators focus more on students’ mathematical reasoning and conceptual understanding? What are some best practices to ensure successful student writing in a mathematics classroom?
In this edWebinar, explore, discuss, and experience research-informed, classroom-tested approaches for writing in the content area of mathematics, with both ELs and non ELs, because we know that all students are mathematics language learners. Together we explore why writing is an important instructional practice, how to best use writing in your mathematics classrooms, and unpack the practical implementation of writing in math.
Viewers will walk away with new ideas on how to utilize writing in their mathematics classrooms in a way that is engaging and exciting for all students. This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to K-8 teachers in New York.
