Many ELs lack the academic language needed to participate actively in the math classroom. While vocabulary instruction in mathematics, for example, is recognized as a critical piece in helping students to engage in mathematical thinking and learning, math teachers struggle to find the instructional time to effectively teach the vocabulary that will enable ELs to better access the content. Ellevation Math, a blended learning program easily fits within the time constraints most teachers face and prepares students with the academic language they need to access rigorous, grade level content.
Adjusts to the scope and sequence of any digital or print math curriculum.
Includes a variety of linguistic supports for ELs and scaffolded practice questions based on ELD levels from the student data in Ellevation.
Focuses on grade-level standards and the complex words and phrases required for grade-level learning and accessible for various proficiency levels.

"You know if there is one thing about your company, it is you really listen. Every other program you see is focused on the math but here you're giving us what we need by focusing on the language of math."
