Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter discusses strategies to create culturally and linguistically sensitive secondary mathematics classrooms. A teaching scenario of a review activity to solve Algebra 2 problems is drawn to illustrate four practices for promoting English Language Learners’ thinking, reasoning, and participation in classroom discourse. Teachers can create a safe, interactive learning environment for English Language Learners through cultural sensitivity and a positive relationship with English learners, their families and communities.
