Mathematics Educator Grace Davila Coates (Berkeley) will be working with the ELL State Collaborative on Assessment and Student Standards (SCASS) at the upcoming Council of Chief State School Officers' meeting in New Orleans. She will be sharing some of our UL mathematics resources developed for ELLs and provide guidance to state leaders on how to best support ELLs in mathematics classrooms. This is a closed event for ELL SCASS members.
Kenji Hakuta, Martha Castellon, and Robert Linquanti will also be present at this meeting in New Orleans. Robert Linquanti will specifically address some guidance for states around a "common EL definition."
