ELDI-MC presents institutes focusing on three areas:
- increasing participants’ knowledge and proficiency in application of the English Language Development (ELD) standards,
- providing access to high-quality mathematics for English language learning (ELL) students, and
- deepening participants’ understanding of mathematics content knowledge in the area of algebra and algebraic thinking.
The ELD standards will form the foundation for the institutes. Algebra content aligned with the California Mathematics Content Standards will be embedded in lessons employing ELD strategies, forming a cohesive and coherent program addressing both ELD standards and access to deeper understanding of mathematics content.
This program was developed for grades K-12.
