Common Core & Struggling Learners
The Addressing Accessibility in Mathematics group at EDC has recently received funding from the National Science Foundation to create a new PD program and resources for teachers who provide mathematics intervention and support in the middle grades. The Strengthening Mathematics Intervention (SMI) project builds on our extensive work over the past 15 years to create innovative PD programs to help districts improve mathematics learning for struggling learners with and without disabilities.
During our first phase of the project, we are studying the landscape of mathematics intervention practices (middle grades) by gathering information from a variety of districts. In the second phase, we will create professional development and resources for teachers aimed at strengthening intervention practices by addressing identified needs.
