Routines for Reasoning: English Learners and Math with Grace Kelemanik and Amy Lucenta (Part 2)

What does a language-rich math classroom look and sound like? How do we get past simple repetition to reach a “harmony of concept and language” for English learners in math classes? How do we move from simply getting the right answer and move toward building metacognitive skills and why is this particularly important for English learners? We discuss these questions and more in part 2 of our 2 part series with Grace Kelemanik and Amy Lucenta, authors of the book “Routines for Reasoning: Fostering the Mathematical Practices in All Students”. You can read Grace and Amy's bios on part 1 of this series
