"Algebra for all students" has created the need for intervention and supplemental programs to support students through the rigors of algebraic content. This need raises the issue of how to evaluate and choose an intervention or readiness program for students. In this webinar, Mardi A. Gale, Senior Research Associate at WestEd, will share research based, essential elements of algebraic intervention programs, citing portions of the Aim for Algebra program to illustrate each of these elements. Aim for Algebra is an algebra intervention program that is standards-aligned, conceptually based, and supports students through modules that focus on common barriers to success in algebra. To enhance retention, the conceptual nature of this targeted curriculum is scaffolded in accordance with current learning theory.
Participants in this webinar will engage in an examination of essential elements for intervention and support curricula that will assist and guide them as they search for appropriate programs. Participants will also learn about an algebra intervention program appropriate for in-school use, as part of existing programs or as a stand-alone, or for use as an extended day program. This intervention program has potential for use as pre-algebra curriculum as well.
This webinar will be helpful for middle and high school teachers of mathematics, math coaches, math curriculum supervisors/consultants, administrators, and district personnel in charge of intervention/support/extended day programs.
