Support For Title I Math
Exemplars differentiated problem-solving tasks are effective supplements for use in Title I programs and the traditional classroom as well as for intervention and after school tutoring.
Specific accounts of how our material is used in Title I programs can be viewed here.
Exemplars standards-based tasks offer Title I programs:
Each Exemplars task is differentiated at three performance levels. Teachers are able to incorporate different variations of a problem in the classroom as needed.
With traditional assessments students may not be engaged, making it difficult to judge if student effort stands in the way of performance. Exemplars real-world tasks are designed to captivate students' interests, by creating problems that are relevant to them.
Exemplars material places great emphasis on process standards. By focusing on mathematical problem solving and communication, teachers are able to look more closely at what Title I students' work demonstrates about their mathematical understanding.
Exemplars annotated anchor papers and student rubrics provide students with a concrete understanding of what work meets the standard and why, facilitating peer- and self-assessment. These tools also assist Title I teachers in identifying student's specific strengths and weaknesses in problems solving. Exemplars enables teachers to help students reach higher levels of thinking and gain greater understanding.
