About Jenny’s presentation
This presentation will include a summary of Jenny’s research findings, with reference to the age, gender, and ethnicity of participants. She will challenge the deficit model of ESOL learners in GCSE mathematics classes, regardless of gender or age, using the insights gained during the research phase. Jenny will also include some of the recommendations that she will make at CPD sessions, on approaches which may be beneficial for adult learners generally.

Jenny says “ I will present a list of possible approaches for consideration. It isn’t possible in a busy maths class to include all of the ideas, so the idea is that people will pick what they feel might work best for them, i.e. the approaches are descriptive, not prescriptive. We will use a a padlet to capture other ideas that attendees have used or thought of, which would give a good resource link which we will share afterwards.”

About Jenny Stacey

She has a master’s degree in education, which includes ESOL, and is currently completing a thesis for a Doctorate in Education. Her research interests include the delivery of mathematics in further education generally, and mathematics and examination anxiety in both adults and 16–18-year-old learners.
