Accelerating Instruction to Meet the Needs of Students: Learning Recovery in Math
This symposium will focus on evidence-based strategies that can be used to support students who experience difficulty with math. This is especially important in light of recent NAEP scores which show the number of students who struggle with math has increased over the last few years. As part of this symposium the presenter will review high-impact practices that will benefit all students, including those with Learning Disabilities. Dr. Powell has vast knowledge on the evidence base of math interventions and will provide tools that can be immediately applied to your learning environment.

Apr 15, 2023 10:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
