Brief Program Description

Math is about more than calculations, procedures and rules. For many students, math is a new language. This session outlines how to build visual literacy in math instruction. Learn to tap into the power of imagery, curiosity, communication and collaboration to support students as they master the language of mathematics. Discover specific steps teachers can take to ensure students; think creatively and visually about math terms, discuss/ debate math concepts and develop clear, concise definitions for key math vocabulary. This right-brained approach is student-centered, interactive and supports Ells and diverse learners. It dramatically increases student opportunities for listening, speaking, reading and writing in mathematics. Let’s get students thinking, visualizing and talking about math and making new connections!
