Description: Kira Walker, an experienced teacher of elementary English learners using writers' workshop, writing conferences, and other literacy strategies, decided to work on teaching mathematics to English learners by applying some of the same literacy strategies. She used the "Algebra Project" by Harlem-born and Harvard-educated Civil Rights leader, Dr. Robert P. Moses, as a jumping-off point for her 5th-grade inquiry project in experiential mathematics and math conferencing. This site excerpts her writing on the project.
