Area of Focus: Mathematics
Our Generation Ready math consultants worked closely with the school’s leadership team to support the development of units of study, then modeled for and guided teachers as they strengthened their instructional practice in math.
Teachers learned to engage students in standards-aligned curriculum that was differentiated for all learners. The consultants supported teachers in establishing small group work where students collaborated around challenging problems.
We also helped to engage students in cognitively demanding math tasks that required them to demonstrate their ability to model with mathematics and/or construct and explore the reasoning behind arguments to arrive at a viable solution.
As a result of our work, the school received an “A” on the NYC Progress Report and a “Well Developed” for the 2013-2014 Quality Review.
