NEW Eighth Period Requirement for Select Grade 8 Students
We are excited to share that about half of our Grade 8 students have been enrolled in an eight period this year for additional math support. Students are required to report to their assigned room location each school day from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM. The only days that students are not required to report are on early release days.
This course will use a personalized math program called Teach to One: Math. As the name suggests, this program helps teachers tailor math instruction for each student. Our leaders and teachers selected this program to meet our goal of preparing all of our students for success in college and their future careers.
Teach to One: Math will help our teachers provide instruction that meets the unique learning needs of each student at Somerset Preparatory Middle. Each day students will receive a customized schedule that provides the mathematics skill they are ready to learn, the best way for them to learn it, and with which teacher and peers they will work with that day. Each student will have his or her own math advisory teacher to meet with every day; that teacher will be your main contact during the school year.
Teach to One: Math was developed by a nonprofit organization called New Classrooms and is used by dozens of schools and thousands of students across the country. In Teach to One: Math, students will explore math with teachers, collaborate with other students, and work with carefully selected, high quality digital lessons. By meeting children where they are, we expect our students will find math more engaging, more connected to the real-world and sometimes more challenging.
