Implementing Literacy Strategies to Improve Mathematics Achievement
Date of Award
Master of Education (MEd)
This research investigated the adoption of a new mathematics program at a local school district and explored several challenges that emerged during its implementation. This math program was touted for its alignment with the new common core standards and its strong emphasis on literacy. Students needed both well developed math skills and well developed literacy skills to benefit from this program. Thus, students with lesser developed literacy skills faced more substantial challenges due to the program’s emphasis on literacy. This research project sought to better understand these complications and provided a particular focus on the use of literacy strategies to enhance the implementation of the math program.
