Integrating Writing and Mathematics
Wilcox, Brad; Monroe, Eula Ewing
Reading Teacher, v64 n7 p521-529 Apr 2011
Teachers often find it difficult to integrate writing and mathematics while honoring the integrity of both disciplines. In this article, the authors present two levels of integration that teachers may use as a starting point. The first level, writing without revision, can be worked into mathematics instruction quickly and readily. The second level, writing with revision, may take more time but enables teachers to connect the writing process more fully with mathematics instruction. Six examples are provided, including student work, in which teachers have successfully attended to the goals of both writing and mathematics. (Contains 6 figures.)
