What the research does and doesn't say: a nice summary

Cruising through my google web alerts this week I came across an article that I wish I (or my google alerts) had found last year when it was written. "Teaching Math to English Language Learners: Can Research Help?" by Suzanne Irujo, ELL Outlook™ Contributing Writer, does a nice job of summarizing much of the same research I came across while developing the concept of Tutor Amigos. Even better is that she puts it in historical context and gives many examples of the English and English-speaking situations that tend to confuse ELL Math learners. If you are just starting to research this field or looking to connect some of the dots, check out this article.
