Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Second Language
academic language, content, culture, English learners (ELs), proficiency
Language barriers have shown a need for differentiation and sheltered instruction in the classroom for English Learners (ELs) to be successful in the United States public school system. This project proposes a mathematics curriculum using SIOP so that both groups of students in the middle school level can increase their proficiency in the mathematics content area as well as experience opportunities for academic and social language development. The purpose of this report is to describe the processes, methods, data, and intent of the mathematics curriculum for these learners. The curriculum acts as an effective intervention to fill gaps in both the academic language of mathematics and the skills necessary to be successful with their grade level peers in a matter of one to two years.
