'Teach to One: Math' Model Expands to 10 States

CLOSING THE MATH GAP: Looks like U.S. eighth graders could use a math tutor. ACT Research says two-thirds of eighth graders are behind in math by the time they head to high school, so nonprofit New Classrooms is ramping up efforts to help students better prepare with Teach to One: Math, a teaching model that individualizes instruction plans so that students' different needs are addressed. New Classrooms announced on August 17 that the Teach to One: Math program is growing in user numbers, growing to 40 schools in 10 states and Washington D.C. to its roster this fall. That’s a 40 percent annual growth, according to the nonprofit.

Teach to One’s approach attempts to improve on the traditional model of one teacher instructing many students. Given schools' increased interest in personalizing learning experiences for students, this math program uses customized daily schedules to provide math lessons at the appropriate times. Teachers get curated learning resources that match their students’ skill levels in hopes of closing learning gaps in the classroom.

Editor's note: An earlier version reported the program is adding 40 schools, but it is expanding to include a total of 40 schools.
