WHAT WE DO

Academic Enrichment | Leadership & Civic Duty | Personal Learning Plans | Case Management | Workforce Development

 

What:

Common Core/Academic Immersion

Why:

It has been stated that in the early elementary grades students “learn to read” and learn to do “arithmetic”, but in the secondary grades students “read to learn” and apply mathematics to everyday situations. By researching strategies that best support the implementation of the Common Core reading, writing and mathematics in all content areas the team will ensure our teachers/programs are adequately prepared to engage students rigorous texts, discussions, critical thinking, problem solving and research.

How:

The goal of the project team will be to produce a Strategies Guide that will be research-based and serve to assist teachers and Liberty Partnerships staff in addressing the academic gaps that prevent students from achieving their full potential. This guide will provide new strategies to support project based learning that will enhance instruction and engage students to become global citizens.
