  • Language is often the problem that English language learners and native speakers have not only in understanding the concepts and relationships in math but also in expressing their math reasoning. A project in six schools trains teachers in math concepts and in how to teach language to access content. Coaches offer ongoing assistance and feedback to support teachers' growth.
