Classnotes Podcast (March 9, 2012) In math and science both, students struggle with academic vocabulary, interpreting charts and graphs in different contexts, and transferring data. One likely issue is a tendency in instruction to isolate classroom activities to the point that students don’t experience the concepts in different contexts. Paula Johnson, M.A., and Veronica Betancourt, M.A., share examples of how teachers can be intentional about modeling and creating opportunities for students to use academic language in practice and transfer knowledge across the curriculum at all grade levels. Paula and Veronica are interviewed by Aurelio M. Montemayor, M.Ed.
