Common Core & Struggling Learners
Welcome to Addressing Accessibility in Mathematics (AAM)! For 15 years, we have created and delivered professional development programs to help districts improve math learning for all students, including struggling learners. We bring general and special educators together to learn new strategies that ensure each student receives the support he or she needs to excel in math. With the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), our PD model is more important than ever before.
Our current project is called Building Mathematics Knowledge for Teaching Struggling Learners. The goals are to help teachers build mathematics knowledge, diagnostic approaches, and instructional strategies for teaching key number standards (CCSS). The target audience is math teachers/general educators and special educators in grades 4-7. Using a blended model (face-to-face and online), we are able to provide a differentiated professional learning experience to address teachers' wide range of content knowledge, experiences and interests.
