145. Improving Mathematic Instruction for Middle Schoolers with Elly Blanco-Rowe

Elly Blanco-Rowe is an expert in K-8 mathematics, with over 20 years of experience in teaching, coaching, and school leadership. We’re talking about Teaching Matters, a national New York City-based nonprofit whose mission is to close the opportunity gap of a radically unequal education system for underserved and historically marginalized children. We take a look specifically at their Math Acceleration pilot program and how it helps to build kids up in their critical areas of education.

We unbox:

  • The background of Teaching Matters
  • How Teaching Matters offers support to students and educators
  • Asking kids their perspective on their education
  • How the learning experience changes from elementary to middle school
  • Working with the individual schools
