This workshop will explore the use of data, scheduling, professional development, math mindsets, adaptive leadership, access and equity frameworks, in moving historically underserved (African American, Latino/Hispanic, Special Education & Low SES) Grade six math students into a higher Grade seven math class. This acceleration model includes professional development supports for Grade seven math teachers. This work in schools is ongoing. It is the hope that 7th grade students will get a strong pre-Algebra background in order to take Algebra in grade eight. This math “trajectory” will set them up to take Calculus by their senior year. Research shows that indicators of high school and postsecondary success can be achieved when students take Algebra in grade eight and Calculus in grade twelve.
The workshop will be presented by George Guy
