The Carroll School: CarrollMath Summer Seminar 2010
June 28 - July 2, 2010
- Only 32% of U.S. 8th graders are proficient in math, according to the National Center for Educational Statistics. As children get older, reading scores continue to increase and math scores decrease.
- The Carroll School has developed the CarrollMath approach to teach mathematics to students with language-based learning disabilities and those who struggle in math.
- The approach relies on five central foundations: (1) Visual Spatial Modeling, (2) Logic Activities, (3) Communication, (4) Fact Fluency, and (5) Applications to traditional math.
- By including these foundations in Carroll's math classrooms, students successfully show increases on nationally-normed assessments.
- The Carroll School is hosting the Annual Math Seminar, an interactive five-day session geared to professionals who teach or supervise math.
- Participants will leave with a crystal clear understanding of the CarrollMath approach and how it makes math concrete and fun for our studnets, allowing them to break the cycle of math failure.
- The principles of instruction follow the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Curriculum Focal Points and represent a systematic approach to sequential understanding of math concepts.
- Have you ever been to a great seminar and needed helpful follow-up? After the Math Seminar, The Carroll School can provide consultation services at your school including observations, needs assessment, workshops, in-class demonstration lessons, and coaching. Information is available on request.
