Developing Language and Mathematics: Geometry, Spatial Relations, Measurement, etc.

Angela Chan Turrou, Ph.D., Senior Researcher, DREME Teacher Education at UCLA
Nick Johnson, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Scholar, DREME Teacher Education at UCLA

This session draws from research and classroom examples to highlight the roles of informal and formal language, gesture, and representation as teachers simultaneously support language development and mathematics learning in whole group and small group settings. We will engage together around classroom videos and rich mathematics activities to explore student thinking and pedagogy. This session focuses specifically on ideas of geometry, spatial relations, measurement, and other core mathematics content for early childhood.
