Grand Erie has launched a Math Achievement Action Plan
A math strategy is already part of our Multi-Year Strategic Plan, and the Math Achievement Action Plan brings increased focus to support math learning and math achievement across the district.
It reflects a collective commitment, from classroom teachers to senior leadership, to support math learning for all students. Math learning and achievement is a focus and a priority.
What are the key components of the plan?
What are the goals of the plan?
Through this plan, Grand Erie is committed to improving math achievement, to be reflected in higher levels of achievement for students, increased performance in EQAO and an increase in attendance for students.
The 2023-24 Annual Learning and Operating Plan details specific improvement targets.
Resources to support the plan
Grand Erie has a number of resources, already in place and in use, available for school administrators and educators to support math learning.
The Math Long Range Plan
This is a plan established in 2021 to map out math education for the Grand Erie. The Math Long Range Plan is an internal web-based platform, accessible to Grand Erie educators, that provides Grand Erie educators access to resources and a framework to support the implementation of the Ontario Mathematics curriculum.
Dr. Alex Lawson is a math expert and researcher who has developed resources for teachers who want to really understand where their students are mathematically, and what they can do to help move their students forward. These resources and this approach support Grand Erie’s Math Achievement Action Plan, and learning in Lawson math continues to be part of math professional development
Building Thinking Classrooms
Developed by a professor of math education, Building Thinking Classrooms is an instructional approach to supporting student thinking and learning. The series includes a number of engaging practices aligned with high-impact instructional practices that support and amplify the goals of the Math Achievement Action Plan.
