Where CCR Math and ELA Skills Overlap

Jan. 18, 2:00-3:00 (registration link)

Did you know that certain CCR Math standards reinforce the standards for English Language Arts (ELA) and vice versa? For example, the Standard for Mathematical Practice #3 — construct viable arguments and critique reasoning of others — is very similar to the ELA standards that push students to be able to say *why* they think what they think and to make arguments using evidence. Furthermore, math and ELA present overlapping opportunities to teach key basic skills, including: learn complex/nuanced vocabulary, read directions carefully and respond appropriately, organize information, and describe/narrate steps for solving a problem. In this webinar, we will explore these areas of overlap and give you some classroom activities that help students integrate both.
