Course Syllabus

We all have them - no matter the grade we teach. Those little ones who, despite how hard they work, continue to struggle with math. This course will provide professional development for classroom teachers K-6 by using self-reflection along with today’s educational research to reach and enhance the learning of those students. By targeting the problem and building learning plans to suit their needs, we can give students the extra push they need to meet the growing expectations of the Common Core State Standards.
