QTEL e-SERIES: A PEDAGOGY OF PROMISE, MATHEMATICS
Secondary educators of English Learners including teachers, teacher leaders and instructional coaches.
You will work with colleagues to understand theoretically-grounded, evidence-based, and practical approaches to mathematics instruction for English Learners. Each module is designed to bring together individual or small-group reading and discussion together with live, whole-group video sessions that demonstrate powerful learning designs.
Below is a sample overview of central themes across four modules:
Module 1: Developing an Ambitious Vision of Mathematics with English Learners
Module 2: Scaffolding the Design of Tasks and Lessons in Mathematics
Module 3: Understanding the Role of Language for English Learners to Engage in Mathematical Practices
Module 4: Task Design to Maximize Interactions
All modules center on a live session with ample opportunities for you to read, reflect, and apply in depth:
Preparation: You will read theoretical background, analyze video, and online discussions about major themes
Live Video Session: You will experience in synchronous activities as if you were a student to analyze the conditions under which English Learners can participate in powerful learning experiences.
Analysis, application, and reflection: You will engage in deep analysis of ideas, tasks, and pedagogical moves found in the exemplar lesson. You will develop applications to your classroom practice.
