dc.description.abstract The author investigated how a school's in-use mathematics curriculum could be adapted to become less linguistically complex for English language learners. In past studies, only mathematics test items were manipulated to reduce linguistic complexity. Drawing from past studies and implementing past ideas into the mathematics curriculum, the adaptions produced a less linguistically complex curriculum. The findings suggest future research and reduction of linguistic complexity within a curriculum. The findings also suggest implementation of curriculum. en_US
