Abstract

In Oregon the Latino population has grown 72% since 2000, which means there is a greater number of emergent bilingual students in our schools, and this will most likely keep growing. To investigate the issues surrounding the requirement that emergent bilinguals learn math and English concurrently, we surveyed and interviewed emergent bilingual students at a local high school. This talk discusses findings of this investigation and possible modifications to curriculum based on these findings.
