See Academic Language Unlock Student Success
The academic language resource your ELs need to succeed in math.
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 writing, reading and listening.
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 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 that prompts students to use the academic language functions needed for rich math discourse: inform, explain, and argue. This encourages students to use newly-learned academic language to demonstrate understanding.
Your Scope and Sequence
Date-based Primer assignments provide enhanced flexibility by allowing educators to assign different Primers to different students. Regardless of your state’s standards, the Primer Library allows you to search for and find the most relevant Primer for your lesson.
