Math teaching strategies are brought to you by

Students have lost nearly two decades of progress in math and reading post-covid, according to recent research. Teaching strategies, teacher preparedness, and students’ sense of belonging all impact students’ math performance. 

To strengthen educators’ skills in math instruction, The Teaching Institute is proud to host workshops featuring Lesley STEAM Labs leaders. Their workshops focus on introducing maker spaces to advance math equity and TQE through a culturally responsive lens.
