More than 10 percent of the students in our nation's public schools are English language learners, and this number grows each year. Many of these students are falling behind in math. "Supporting English Language Learners in Math Class, Grades 3-5" outlines the challenges ELL students face when learning math and provides a wealth of specific strategies teachers can use to help them succeed. The lessons in this book guide teachers of grades 3 through 5 in developing students' proficiency in English while also developing their mathematical understanding. In addition, teachers learn how to modify existing math lessons to support students with varying degrees of English language proficiency.
