ab: Summary: The TR/NYCity model of teaching-research has its origins at Hostos
Community College (HCC) in the Mathematics/English-as-a-Second-Language
(ESL) linked course teaching experiment, entitled ESL/Math
Collaboration Toward Building the Family Model at Hostos CC. In this
11th year of evolving development, a blending of themes has been its
hallmark, with mathematics remaining a steady focus. In the teaching
experiment above, the question was, ‒ would closely knit coordination
of syllabi between the algebra course, with its algebraic language, and
intermediate-level ESL, help students better learn English? The hope
was the learning algebra with its highly syntactical language in
coordination with learning the syntax of the natural language would
help in mastering the latter.
