The Carroll School: CarrollMath Summer Seminar 2011
July 11-15, 2011
- 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 languagebased 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, July 11-15, 2011, 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 students, 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, inclass demonstration lessons, and coaching. Information is available upon request.
"Grade by grade the improvement in student achievement was staggering! The efﬁcacy of the program is remarkable, and I feel as though we have found an approach which supports our students' learning proﬁles and truly honors their strengths. It is a program that truly holds up to Carroll's motto that "Teaching Math is Teaching Thinking."
