The goal of the Multi-Tiered Systems of Support framework is to ensure all children benefit from high-quality instruction and that those students who need additional support to fill gaps in their knowledge and skills receive intervention.
Whether your district has already implemented MTSS for mathematics or is just getting started, tune in to this hour-long webinar for guidance to develop, implement, and refine math-focused MTSS.
Access to high-quality, equitable math instruction is hardly a given, especially for historically marginalized students. Every child deserves a math education that allows them to make sense of the world quantitatively and to appreciate their own power to reason.
During this on-demand webinar Dr. Kyndall Brown, co-author of Choosing to See: A Framework for Equity in the Math Classroom, will share guidance and a framework for fostering a culture of inclusion.
Syntax and sentence comprehension are critical yet often forgotten contributors to comprehension. The science tells us that the ability to understand sentence structure, or syntax, is critical to students’ comprehension of written text. The skilled reader has to understand not only the meanings of the words but also the ideas conveyed within and between sentences while integrating background knowledge to infer what is implied in the text. While individual words contribute to the meaning of the ideas, syntax provides the structure for ordering and organizing these idea units within the sentence. It supports the reader’s understanding of who or what did what to whom, when, where, and how within the sentence. An understanding of how the structure of sentences conveys meaning is particularly important as texts increase in complexity through the grades. READ MORE
