Make Math Moments Academy Forums Community Discussion Water Cooler New Intervention Class

    Hello All!

    I’m working on a high level plan for a new intervention class for 6th grade (and 7th and 8th as well) that will be a “2nd math class” for students identified as “struggling learners”.<br>

    We have tried volunteer after school intervention help, in class intervention, pre-teaching after school, homework help after school, and various other models.  I want this new class to be successful and am looking for ideas on how to structure it to be most effective.

    Overall, I want these students to learn to love math, and see it as a creative, flexible, and engaging subject.  I want students to develop a growth (vs. fixed) mindset for math class.  We won’t have homework in this class…and I’d like any assessments to be focused on continuous improvement with detailed meaningful feedback vs. grades… so basically there will be no grades.  I’ll need to figure out how to motivate these students in a positive way.

    Any ideas or already existing resources would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!<br>Leslie from East SF Bay Area (Northern Calif.)

    I am trying to do the same thing.  Kids won’t stay after school, come in at lunch time, or come early to school.  I have found a few things on teacherspayteachers.com but not sure if I am going to use them or not.
