District Partnership and Shared Accountability Lead to Success
Research shows that comprehensive reform requires working in partnership with districts and building leadership. We work with you to provide a vision for revolutionizing mathematics teaching and learning and a framework for ensuring transformation. We are currently partnering with schools and districts across the U.S. to bring true mathematics success to their students.
How is the Carnegie Learning curricula different?
- MATHia and Cognitive Tutor software delivers ongoing formative assessment and the most precise method of differentiated instruction available
- Individualized instruction in our curricula is based on cognitive models derived from over 20 years of research on how students think, learn and apply knowledge
- Problem-solving is presented in a real-world context, focused on developing academic discourse
- Learning by Doing is the foundation of our instruction
We Partner with You and Support Your Goals for Student and Educator Improvement
We believe in our ability to partner to positively impact math achievement in your school and are committed to partnering with you to engage in this work. Before beginning our work together, we will create a theory of action, establish performance benchmarks, and use data to monitor our success.
Your commitment to providing instruction that is targeted to how students learn best, how teachers grow, and how schools change is the key to reversing the culture of failure. We too are accountable to this mission and committed to success in your school.
Over the course of the first year, Carnegie Learning will provide you with a portfolio of resources to guide you in effectively implementing Carnegie Learning curricula, supporting teachers for instructional change, and systematically meeting performance benchmarks for increased student achievement.
