“According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, math coaches are essential in helping teachers develop deep understandings of the mathematics they teach, plan meaningful lessons, implement relevant and effective strategies for teaching, assess student learning and adjust their instructional practices.
Multisensory Math Clinic
The summer slide is real! “School’s out: The role of summers in understanding achievement disparities,” was recently published in the American Educational Research Journal and examined the magnitude and variability in summer learning loss across grades 1–8. This study found that the average student lost 17–34% of the prior year’s learning gains during summer break, as well as that students who lose ground in one summer are more likely to also lose ground in subsequent summers. Rising first through sixth graders are invited to join us July 8-26, 2024 from 8-9:30 a.m. for a Multisensory Math Clinic.
