Math, the Common Core, and Language: Recommendations for Math Instruction for ELs Aligned with the Common Core

This paper outlines recommendations for meeting the challenges in developing mathematics instruction for English Learners (ELs) that is aligned with the Common Core Standards. The recommendations are motivated by a commitment to improving mathematics learning through language for all students and especially for students who are learning English. These recommendations are not intended as recipes or quick fixes, but rather as principles to help to guide teachers, curriculum developers, and teacher educators in developing their own approaches to supporting mathematical reasoning and sense making for students who are learning English.
