Course Description

This course is about how to design and implement effective math interventions. We will look at various assessments, intervention implementation plans, and differentiated activities to provide scaffolded access to grade level standards. We explore various teaching formats and ongoing formative assessments that provide struggling students with the assistance they need. So often, educators are left to figure out what to do on their own. This course will give you a path to follow. The price includes full access to the course and materials for 10 months.
