*Professional development for educational assistants on math talk. *SLT members collaborate with math coach and ELL specialist on best practice strategies for Math Talk. First I saw that we have two partners... We already have 8 so I count on...
*Teachers will provide intentional vocabulary instruction within the math block using: -Math Expressions ELL tips within each unit -Key vocabulary highlighted by math coach -Additional vocabulary taught based on student need. *Explore ACCESS test scores and “Can do” descriptors and relate them to math instruction. Our Content Word Wall is used specifically for posting vocabulary taught in math, science and social studies, aside from our traditional Word Wall.
Tier 2 &3 *Meet with small groups for those who need more intensive instruction. *Use data to identify the students with the greatest academic needs.
