I learned a lot from this class that I will be using next month when I am back in the classroom. Professor Reimer had very clear directions and was very efficient in her feedback from each module. I would recommend other math teachers to take this course.

I recently completed a course on teaching math to English language learners (ELLs), and I would rate the experience as excellent. This is the first course I have ever taken with Fresno Pacific on the recommendation of my friend. This course provided valuable insights and practical strategies for effectively teaching ELLs in mathematical concepts. The content was well-structured, covering essential topics such as language support, scaffolding techniques, and cultural sensitivity. The instructor demonstrated a deep understanding of the challenges faced by ELLs in learning math and offered a range of effective instructional approaches. The course materials, including visual aids examples, and resources, were comprehensive and relevant, facilitating both theoretical understanding and practical implementation. One aspect that stood out was the emphasis on clarity of instruction. This course highlighted the importance of using simple, concise language while avoiding complex terminology and jargon. This approach, coupled with the use of visual aids and real-life examples, significantly enhanced my ability to convey mathematical concepts in a manner that ELLs could grasp easily. This course also recognized the importance of collaboration and interaction among ELLs. It stressed the benefits of peer discussions and explanations, allowing students to build their mathematical language and reasoning skills together. This aspect of the course inspired me to implement more collaborative activities in my own teaching, fostering a supportive and interactive classroom environment. Overall, I would highly recommend this course to any teacher seeking to enhance their abilities in teaching math to English language learners. This course provided a comprehensive range of strategies and resources, giving me the tools necessary to create an inclusive and effective learning experience for ELLs. I feel confident in my ability to support ELLs in developing their mathematical skills while also improving their English language proficiency. I am considering taking more courses to complete the math certificate offered by Fresno Pacific.

It was nice learning about different strategies in helping my English Learner students in my math classroom. Knowing that some of the strategies are staples in my classroom already made me feel better knowing that I was on the right track.

Instructor is really here to assist you in any way. She never made me feel dumb for asking the questions I did. She was very helpful. I want to take more classes with her. The class itself was eye opening in regards to how I can teach math to my EL students.

This was a very informative and highly organized course! The activities, selected readings, and length of the assignments matched my needs as a math educator. I appreciate the ease in using the technology platform and in submitting assignments. I look forward to taking another course with Fresno Pacific University.
