How does CPM help support teachers in addressing the needs of the English Language Learners?
CPM provides opportunities for students to read, write, speak, and listen. Team roles, which are a strategy used in Complex Instruction, based of the research of Elizabeth Cohen and her colleagues (Cohen & Lotan, 1997; Cohen, 1994), encourage all students to be responsible for the functioning of their team, creating equity in the classroom.
Universal Access: Most lessons in the teacher materials of the Core Connections courses includes a section on Universal Access, written by ELL and SPED teachers. This section offers guidance so that teachers can further support students.
All Core Connections series texts are available in Spanish. The Homework Help is also available in Spanish for these courses.
All Core ConneceBooks have both a Spanish and English tab so that students can toggle between the two if needed.
