Webinar 4 – Seizing Twelfth Grade to Improve Math Readiness: Senior-Year Transition Courses
October 27, 11:00am – 12:15pm Pacific (2pm – 3:15pm Eastern)
Faced with high proportions of students needing remedial math courses in college, education systems across the country are prioritizing the goal of improving college readiness. Approaches include both strengthening K12 instruction and improving alignment with postsecondary expectations. One relatively new strategy that combines these approaches and links postsecondary institutions and K12 school is the design of senior-year transition courses. These courses aim to ensure students are ready for the demands of college-level math courses. Join us to hear from researchers and practitioners about efforts to implement transition courses and their success to date.
