Award-winning educator Alex Kajitani says that the old models of lectures and worksheets aren’t enough to help students think deeply about math and get excited about it. The key to unlocking math skills for your students lies in connecting math and literacy in your classroom. Students will be better able to engage and discover deep meaning in math when they are thinking, talking, reading, and writing about it.
In this course, “How to Connect Math and Literacy,” Mr. Kajitani shares both principles about math and practical ways that educators can make the most of literacy when teaching math.
- Why literacy is important in math
- Games that connect math and literacy
