Interventions for Teaching Algebra to Secondary Students with Learning Disabilities: A CEC/DLD Collaborative Webinar
This session provides an overview of evidence-based instruction and interventions for teaching mathematics for secondary students. Working with the arithmetic to algebra gap framework of Witzel, Smith and Brownell (2001), Dr. Witzel presents research supported instructional approaches shown to help students with academic difficulties build foundational mathematics skills (such as integers, fractions, and equations) in order to improve success in algebra. Additionally, he provides suggestions on how to prevent difficulties with algebra acquisition.After viewing this program, you will be able to:
- Describe research-supported interventions for helping students who struggle in algebra.
- Use direct/explicit instruction to introduce struggling students to new math concepts such as integers, fractions, and equations.
- Apply strategies to help students make sense of abstract algebra concepts and procedures.
