Accelerated math leads to success

To prepare students to meet the Georgia mathematics standards, Dr. George Washington Carver Elementary School has implemented Accelerated Math, a program that accelerates the learning of mathematics when used in conjunction with their existing instructional practices and their math textbook. Accelerated Math ensures that students are working at an appropriate level, mastering new objectives, and reviewing skills that they have already mastered. With this program, teachers are provided with information that allows them to make informed instructional decisions and tailor math interventions to meet the needs of individual students.

Georgia's math curriculum

In fall 2005, schools throughout Georgia began implementing a new mathematics curriculum, the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) for Mathematics. These standards were developed by master classroom teachers, district and regional mathematics leaders, and university faculty and were publicly discussed for several months. The GPS in Mathematics lays a foundation for a more advanced mathematics education than is currently offered to Georgia students. The changes have been strongly endorsed by faculty from the state's major colleges and universities, including Georgia Tech, Georgia State University, and the University of Georgia.

Teacher comments raising achievement

Teachers at Bryan County Middle School have seen success with the process of examining student work through teacher commentary. BCMS teachers meet collaboratively to review samples of student work.

Based on the analysis, they also plan for what the teacher might do next to help those learners who have still not met the objectives. Teacher commentary is a powerful tool for both teachers and students. When used properly, it has a positive impact on student achievement. Teacher commentary provides an ...

New students, new lab

Beginning a new semester with new students is something that has to be approached with deliberate concern. This sophisticated inauguration process would be explicitly complicated when the teacher has to tackle new students and a new computer lab. This is exactly what happened to Vicki Braswell at Richmond Hill High School this past January. Mrs. Braswell boldly accepted the opportunity to be the first non-vocational teacher at Richmond Hill High school to conduct her class on a daily basis with the aid of a full computer lab.
