EDME 521 Institutional Context Factors Goals & Needs: 6th grade
Math Inclusion Class Gender:
-3 Male Students
-1 Female Student
-11 to 12 years old
Socioeconomic Status:
- low-income
Country of Origin:
- Puerto Rico
Proficiency Levels:
- L3= Expanding
- L4= Developing
* these levels were the weighted results of their WIDA scores.
{WIDA= World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment Goals:
- To take the WIDA Tier C exit exam and score a 5.
- To take the PSSA's this school year and score Basic on Math.

- Reading aloud directions to monitor comprehension.
- Test taking strategies. Purpose of Learning English: Academic Requirement

Use of English: In every aspect of their course work.

Use of Spanish: May use translation if completely confused but for these levels the Second language should be used 100% of the time. Uses of L1 & L2 - Our school implements ELL modifications in regular course teacher instructional plans. Standards ELP Standard for this context: "English language learners communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of Mathematics."
-PA ELP Standards Website http://static.pdesas.org/content/documents/Pennsylvania_English_Language_Proficiency_Standards.pdf EXAMPLE MATH TOPIC
& EXAMPLE STANDARDS: Prime Factorization:
Level 3 Students: Developing

1) Describe and Propose Orally and in Writing, Exponents, Base numbers, multiples and prime numbers.

2) Follow listed instructions.

3) Match everyday examples.

4) Classify visually supported examples. Prime Factorization:
Level 4: Expanding

1) Describe and propose but also compare and contrast.

2) Follow listed instructions but also offer alternative solutions to solve problem.

3) Create everyday examples or identify essential information.

4) Instead of classifying examples only, also create your own. EXAMPLE MATH TOPIC
& EXAMPLE STANDARDS: http://static.pdesas.org/content/documents/Pennsylvania_English_Language_Proficiency_Standards.pdf
1) Warm-Up's: Activate Prior Knowledge, Motivate and highlight important aspects of lesson for the students. Should be short (3-5 minutes) and engaging.
Ex: Show a series of wardrobe combinations and have students work on Combination trees. * All instructions should be written in English*

2) Problem Solving: Allows for them to classify, create and explain solutions to a problem. Try to use real life examples they could relate to.
*When explaining they should speak in English.*

3) Small Groups: In small groups they could help each other understand concepts, and it teaches them core life skills of working with others.
Ex: Pair Share and discuss combination trees from Do Now. Instructional Techniques:
1) White Board/Smart board activities: State a math problem using English and allow the students to find the solution independently on white boards. This helps the teacher to observe which students are struggling, which understood the instructions, and which have mastered the content.

2) Cool Math Online Games: Allows students to practice in a creative, interactive and competitive manner. You could also find lessons, and puzzles for homework practice.

the use of technology:

3) Gallery Walk: (Suggested by a fellow ESL teacher) Using smartphones or ipods, have each student access each problem after you use QR codes to place problems for them to answer. This could also be done with partners. Or you could simply post problems around the classroom and have them walk around as in a gallery solving the problems. (Vogt & Echevarria, 2008)

4) Piece O'Pizza: You could have them make pizza pies from paper, or bring real pizza pies and have students practice fractions or percentages. (Vogt & Echevarria, 2008)

5) Move It: As simple as the Title= DO ANY ACTIVITY THAT COULD KEEP THEM MOVING! They could listen to English instructions, write down in English solutions as well as stand and state correct answers. (Vogt & Echevarria, 2008) Instructional Techniques with
the use of technology:

4) Quick Hits: Simple worksheets that allow students to test their mastery of accuracy and speed in preparation for the PSSA's that they must take and receive at least a score of Basic.
Ex: A worksheet of exponents... 5 questions 1 minute per question to complete task. Questions can look like 5^2.

5) Drills: Help students formulate responses that either require them to choose meaningfully according to the math problem provided, or requires them to imitate exactly what the educator models.
