Urban Students Acquiring English and Learning Mathematics in the Context of Reform.
Secada, Walter G.
Urban Education, v30 n4 p422-48 Jan 1996
Discusses whether urban schools' efforts at reforming mathematics should specifically address students acquiring English or assume students' needs will be addressed under the broader aegis of reform. The article addresses thoughts about the bilingual mathematics learner, curriculum, teaching, assessment, and evaluation in which collaborative efforts between mathematics reformers and bilingual educators could be productive.
