About HELP Math
HELP Math employs the research-based Sheltered Instruction pedagogy for teaching mathematics and other academic content that has been proven effective in a classroom setting, demonstrating remarkable success with both ELL and non-ELL students.
HELP Math is the first instructional program to successfully incorporate sheltered instruction practices into a comprehensive academic curriculum using technology.
We have created a video demonstrating the power of sheltered instruction. You will experience what it feels like for a non-native speaker to learn math content in a second language. In this six minute video, Dr. Lynda Franco, expert in English language acquisition, takes you through a mathematics lesson. The first two minutes of instruction are provided solely in Spanish in a manner typifying teacher-led textbook practice. In the second part of the video, Dr. Franco delivers the same math lesson; however, this time, she uses sheltered instruction techniques to illuminate the content.

"..students are more focused and engaged in HELP Math, mainly due to its use of the SIOP model and the linguistic support it offers."
