Research conducted in native language classrooms across the US shows that teachers struggle to engage students in the rigorous, cognitively demanding mathematics content necessary for developing deep mathematical understanding (Stein et al., 1996). With an increased prevalence of foreign language math classrooms (such as immersion, FLES, and EL) across the nation, the added difficulty of conveying rigorous material in a foreign language (or Cognitive-Linguistic Demand Interaction) must also be investigated and addressed. This talk presents data that supports the existence of a Cognitive-Linguistic Demand Interaction and a Professional Development Program designed to mediate its effects on student access to rigorous mathematics in the target language.
