MCMI Virtual Summer Institute: Positioning Multilingual Learners for Success in Mathematics

August 1, 2024 with Featured Speaker Dr. Jeff Zwiers

Join us via Zoom from 9:00–2:30 for a day of virtual learning for K–12 math educators and administrators.

Jeff Zwiers

Jeff Zwiers is a senior researcher at the Stanford Graduate School of Education. His work focuses on improving instruction and assessment of all students, with an emphasis on serving the needs of linguistically and culturally diverse students. He consults for national and international teacher development projects that develop language, literacy, lesson design, and formative assessment practices. His current research focuses on developing classroom instruction that fosters rich communication and productive academic conversations across disciplines and grade levels.

Session Description

Beyond just showing work and sharing solution methods: Using mathematical language routines to engage students in robust mathematical talk

This presentation focuses on improving the quantity and quality of students’ mathematical talk through the use of mathematical language routines. These routines can be “plugged in” to existing curricula, but they are most effective when students use the routines to build up meaty mathematical concepts and claims.
