Abstract

This study then looks into specific researched based literacy practices to determine which strategies are known to work and help students read. The study then looks into research-based literacy specific practices to determine which strategies are known to work to help students read. Then, I take what I have previously learned regarding why students struggle to read mathematical text, and take the literacy strategies I found to further modify them into discipline specific literacy strategies. The purpose of this study is to provide professionals, including myself, a toolkit of mathematical literacy strategies to use to implement into everyday instruction, ultimately increasing students content knowledge.
