Finally, a resource that guides teachers in answering the challenge of how to create an engaging and effective mathematics environment that supports culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) learners, including English language learners.
Based on years of extensive research into working with CLD students along with personal experiences as a mathematics teacher and teacher supervisor, Arthur Johnson presents classroom teachers with the strategies, techniques, and practices proven to effectively help CLD learners thrive in mathematics. In his newest book, Teaching Mathematics to Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Learners, Johnson explains the important role mathematics has for CLD learners and provides a foundation for understanding the challenges these students face (including how cultural background affects CLD learners), and those classroom-tested strategies that help them learn mathematics. He has filled his book with real teacher experiences and steps you might take to help each student, examples of surveys, lesson plans, suitable projects, resources in Spanish, multicultural books, and much more to effectively help teachers with CLD learners to learn and understand mathematics to be more than just numbers.
