Summary: The TR/NYCity model of teachingresearch has its origins at Hostos Community College (HCC) in the Mathematics/EnglishasaSecondLanguage (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 intermediatelevel 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.
