ELL and Statistics Education

TODOS members Larry Lesser and Matthew Winsor published the first research study on ELL issues in the context of statistics education in the current (November 2009) issue of Statistics Education Research Journal. While the paper appears in this highly selective research journal, much of it is also intended to be accessible and useful to teachers, most notably the section called “Recommendations for Teaching.” Read the article without charge or password at here.

Elections Coming Soon!
