Prepare ELs to access rigorous, grade level math content.
Ellevation Math develops the academic language of students in math by front-loading key vocabulary concepts within the context of solving math problems and provides practice in all four language domains - speaking, writing, reading and listening.
An Introduction to Ellevation Math
Front-loading without Overloading
Ellevation Math is a collection of Primers, or lessons, that ELs complete before math class in order to learn the math vocabulary through exposure to the content. They can also be used to review math vocabulary and concepts for students who need extra support in developing the language required for math instruction and assessments.
EL Specific Supports Included
Unlike other solutions in the marketplace, Ellevation has both the underlying student ELP data, AND the expertise, to deliver a set of supports uniquely tailored to the needs of every English Learner in your classroom. As students complete a Primer, they will find helpful supports like visual anchors, a dictionary with accessible definitions, printable reference sheets, adjustable read alouds, and more.
Age-Appropriate with Real World Examples and Vocabulary in Context
With content and art that are appropriate for adolescent EL, Primers build on what students already know, and use stories that relate to students’ lives and experiences. They also provide models of where math is used in varied careers and contexts to provide windows into relevant applications of math in the real world. The vocabulary appears in context within these scenarios, not just as lists of words.
Each Primer includes a Confidence Question where students self-report their comfort level answering certain questions. This allows teachers to know which students to call on to increase their confidence and participation in the classroom.
Your Scope and Sequence
During implementation, Ellevation works closely with key district stakeholders to ensure that the Primers support your scope and sequence. Ellevation Math works best when it is closely aligned to the instructional objectives of the teacher.
