Integrating Writing and Mathematics

How alternative theories of school writing account for student performance. Smaller to larger with zero. Numerous and varied opportunities for this integration support students as they learn to think their way into mathematics and make it their own Zinsser, and also become more aware of the range of writing possibilities available to them Newell, I thought that was cool.

I can discuss their mathematical thinking and their writing in the same conference. She also had her students write about mathematics in a process-oriented way during writing workshop.

Alphabet books One fifth-grade teacher helped her students create alphabet books to develop mathematics vocabulary. On the left side, she directed students to define integers and construct number lines to demonstrate relative size of integer pairs.

When the students are finished, the teacher gathers the pages in order and adds a cover with a title. Clearing House, 71 1 Connecting mathematics and writing workshop: On the right side, students wrote their own reactions and observations. Writing with revision Shared writing A third-grade teacher used shared writing with her students to review what they had learned in their geometry unit.

Students were assigned to use each word in a meaningful sentence, draw an appropriate representation, or write a real-world connection see Figure 6. Six examples are provided, including student work, in which teachers have successfully attended to the goals of both writing and mathematics.

In this way, students produce multiple copies of the same book. Once a shared writing is completed on chart paper, the teacher numbers the sentences and assigns each student a numbered part to write as a final draft for a page in the class book.

Smaller to larger with zero. In this way, students produce multiple copies of the same book. Concurrently, students are held accountable for their own mathematical understanding.Integrating Writing and Mathematics. Authors. Brad Wilcox can be worked into mathematics instruction quickly and readily.

The second level, writing with revision, may take more time but enables teachers to connect the writing process more fully with mathematics instruction.
