Direct instruction mathematics in an alternate setting: a teacher resource
The following project concerns the implementation of direct instruction mathematics in an alternate learning environment, specifically for the student population at Eighth Avenue Learning Centre in Port Alberni, British Columbia. The goal of this research is the creation of a teacher’s guide resource specifically designed for the instruction of the Mathematics Apprenticeship and Workplace 11. This course is accessed by many students at Eighth Avenue as it which fulfills a graduation requirement that had been historically difficult for students to achieve via other modes of instruction offered at the school. Research supports utilizing principles of alternate education into a direct instruction mode of teaching for those deemed “atrisk”.
