  • Looking at all the things to improve student learning

    Posted by Tracy McDiarmid on January 12, 2021 at 12:41 pm

    I teach a small group of 6th grade and 7/8th grade students at an international school in Utah. International because most students are refugees from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and South America/Central America. All English Language learners. All with educational gaps. My intent is to teach them the grade standards they need while also addressing the learning gaps that exist. In order to do this I do a mix of direct instruction combined with collaborative discovery learning. My goal is to increase their literacy while learning math, so getting them talking and writing about the numbers is my focus
