Abstract

The core innovation of the Ready to Teach program is online "Close Support" courses for algebra teachers that address both content and pedagogy needs of participating teachers. These courses provide content-specific assistance to teachers of algebra I and II. Each participating teacher will, at the same time, be teaching the same topic to students. Close Support comprises five components - timing, content, parallel teacher and student activities, insights into student thinking, discussions with peers.
