Department of Education (the Department) invites mathematics leaders, coaches, school administrators, department chairs, teachers, policy makers, researchers, and other math education professionals to participate in the final technical assistance session from a project highlighting strategies to support struggling students in algebra. The Promoting Student Success in Algebra I (PSSA) project, conducted by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) and funded by the Office of Academic Improvement at the Department, aims to provide program developers and administrators with a deeper understanding of five promising strategies for improving student success in Algebra I and, ultimately, high school graduation. The five strategies are: instructional practices, professional development, instructional coaching, curriculum alignment, and supplementary learning supports for struggling students. The upcoming webinar, which represents the last phase of the project, will summarize findings about how several of these strategies are integrated into systemic algebra improvement initiatives carried out in three districts. An overview of the project, as well as publications from all phases of the project, can be found here: https://www2.ed.gov/programs/dropout/resources.html The webinar will include an overview of the project by staff from the Department, a presentation by the AIR lead researchers on the topic, followed by an external discussant who will provide additional practice-based insights on the content of the presentation. The discussant, Carol Mosesson-Teig from the New York City Department of Education, will share insights related to a current algebra initiative being carried out in New York City. Register for this event. Questions If you have questions about the Webinars, please contact AIR at: skalavapudi@air.org or 202.403.5714 noreply@air.org America/New_York public
