Math has its own specialized language. Mathematicians write in symbols, read patterns, and think in terms of visual or abstract ideas. With a disciplinary literacy approach, math teachers can focus on teaching their specialized content by showing students the literacies that truly support mathematical thinking – so students can read, write, think, investigate, and communicate as mathematicians.

This On-Your-Feet Guide will help teachers:

  • Plan instruction that engages students’ natural inquiry and curiosity;
  • Apprentice students toward deeper understanding of mathematical concepts, terms, symbols, and patterns;
  • Help students use their new learning to create, communicate, and act as mathematicians;
  • Teach skills required by mathematical standards and frameworks; and
  • Start working with colleagues to design instructional units that incorporate both mathematics and literacy skills.
