221- What Were They Thinking? Assessing ELL Students' Mathematical Knowledge

Friday, November 30, 2012: 3:30 PM-4:30 PM
Grand Ballroom C North (Hyatt)
Lead Speaker:

Perceived deficits in ELL students’ mathematics are not always as they appear. We will share a case of an ELL student’s work pertaining to slope and congruence, along with possible explanations for such answers. A discussion on effective classroom teaching and assessment practices for ELL students aligned with the Equity Principle will follow.
