Teaching Reading in Mathematics: A Supplement to "Teaching Reading in the Content Areas Teacher's Manual (2nd Ed.)."
Barton, Mary Lee; Heidema, Clare
This document explores what literacy in mathematics involves and presents suggestions and strategies teachers can share with their students to help them become more proficient in reading and communicating in mathematics. The book examines what the research says about the role of the reader, the role of climate, and the role that text features in mathematics as well as their implications for instruction. It also presents math-specific examples of the strategies included in "Teaching Reading in the Content Areas (TRCA) Teacher's Manual" so that mathematics teachers can see how to use and apply these strategies in their classrooms.
