With increased attention to critical thinking and problem solving required by the Common Core State Standards, secondary math teachers face challenges in regards to integrating literacy skills into the math curriculum. Without an infusion of literacy skills students will be unable to handle the conceptual requirements mandated by the new standards. The study will apply two different literacy strategies in a mathematics secondary classroom setting in which students will be surveyed in order to see if they found the literacy strategies effective in helping them communicate their mathematical ideas both orally and written. The study will attempt to ascertain what considerations high school math teachers have in regards to incorporating literacy strategies in secondary classrooms.
