This writing experience focuses on the academic language of Math for our English Learners. With this writing experience comes crucial linguistic, graphic, and interactive support through a rigorous writing experience. This is a perfect writing experience to do at the beginning of the year!
While the graph itself provides the graphic support, the semantic map (Verb Arrow) provides the vocabulary expansion that we need to integrate into every learning experience for our English Learners. How do we intentionally grow our students’ content vocabulary but also their more general academic vocabulary? This writing experience requires students to do both.
