• New microsystems:

  • Implement Team Teaching – Rotate and Read the Floor
  • Implement Team Teaching – Engage Students Appropriately
  • Implement Team Teaching – Interact Effectively With Students

Items of note include instructions and resources for:

• Properly setting students up for success through a balance of instruction and independent work.
• Using the new Session Wheel and Workout Plan to maintain session accountability for each student. These tools not only help manage individual student visits, but also allow you to establish goals for/with your students and track their progress over time.
• Creating effective one-on-one engagements within the Mathnasium Team Teaching model.
