Smore Newsletters for Education Five research-based principles of second language instruction should form the basis for the education of English language learners in grades PreK – 12. Teachers can use the five principles and specific teaching and learning strategies to accelerate the learning process, promote academic achievement, and foster academic language acquisition (Levine, Smallwood, & Haynes, 2012a, 2012b). Teaching by these principles is helpful for ALL of our students, but is essential for our ELLs and struggling learners. New Video Resources: Instructional Routines to Improve Students’ Mathematical Thinking New Visions for Public Schools curriculum teams have adopted instructional routines, which are “designs for interaction that organize classroom instruction” because they are a powerful tool that can help support teachers at all stages of development in their careers. Below is a personal narrative from one of our instructional specialists, David Wees, who has over 25 years’ experience working in education, on why he and the New Visions math team have adopted instructional routines. David also highlights new videos and resources that New Visions has developed to help you get started using these routines in your own classroom. The Challenge of Initiating Mathematical Discussions in the Classroom When I first started teaching, I quickly developed procedures and routines for things like handing out materials, but my lesson plans were all over the place. Any student mathematical discussions that occurred were haphazard and almost always initiated by students.
