Addressing Unfinished Learning Through Acceleration
Schools across Texas are working hard to address unfinished learning and ensure the greatest levels of success for all students. Realizing these goals will require innovative approaches to instruction that include accelerating students’ progressions of learning. Consider guidance for educators looking for tools and strategies that build conceptual understanding more efficiently and result in increased student enjoyment of mathematics while growing academic outcomes.
