Title 1 Math Abstract

Title I math is designed to help students who are struggling in math. Within the Title-I services students are going to have instructional time based around supplementing the Everyday Math curriculum which is being currently taught in their classroom. This will give the students a second look at the material, as well as increased processing time. Supplemental instruction is in addition to the core program and coordinated during grade level team meetings and common planning times. Students will be in groups of 3-6 students who will be seen between 2-5 times per week. Students will be taken in two different groups per grade level. One group will be a set group of Title-I students. These students will be receiving additional Everyday Math instruction.

Students will be selected for this program based on a set of criteria. The criteria includes: percentile scored on the NWEA standardized test, NECAP standardized test if taken, students performance level on the most recent common assessment taken in the classroom, if the student is receiving other services, if the child is homeless, or considered to be from a migrant family, as well as the classroom teacher’s input. Students will receive points on a scale for each of the said categories. All the points will be added up, the students scoring the highest will be allowed into the Title-I program.

Some of the programs we use include Everyday Mathematics, Rocket Math, NECAP preparation, and to incorporate technology we use some math game websites to improve the basic facts skills. Everyday Math is what our program is based off of. We use the lessons in the Everyday Math program, to supplement what they are getting for instruction in the classroom. To increase skills in basic computation and facts we use rocket math, and online games to help solidify their facts. We also use some prepared materials to help them with open ended math questions.

We analyze the data from both NECAP and NWEA testing. This data is used to determine what sills the most need work for each student. By looking up their detailed report, we can see which skills each student needs help with. From looking at these skills we can determine which lessons will be appropriate for each group of students. This year according to the NECAP reports we made AYP in math in the economically disadvantaged group. Students are also making large gains on their NWEA testing.
