*‘Writing in Math Class is a win-win for Students & Teachers’ is the headline of one of my Education Week Teacher columns.*

Regular readers know that, in addition to teaching high school during the day, I also teach an ESL Methods class to teacher credential candidates at California State University, Sacramento.

Next semester, I have also insanely agreed to teach a content literacy class to credential candidates at the University of California, Davis.

I’ve got a good handle on writing in Social Studies and English classes and, in preparation for the course, am reading up on writing in math and science classes.

Here’s the beginning of a list on writing in math (I’ve also including some resources on reading), and one on writing in science is not far behind. Feel free to share your own suggestions:

Hi, Larry,

Consider Writing to Learn Mathematics: Strategies K-12 by Joan Countryman.

Hi Larry,

I recently completed a thesis about mathematical writing in a 2nd-grade dual-language classroom. In the process, I came across a considerable amount of literature and other resources about writing mathematically in K-12 settings.

Let me know if you need help with this topic. Thanks!
