Differentiated math instruction in PAUSD?
Original post made by Math?, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Aug 19, 2008
My child had a scale score of 600 on the math section of the STAR test. Actually, I'm not sure whether this is even that remarkable, but I wanted to find out how differentiated math instruction works in the PAUSD.
I'm not particularly hung up on my child participating in a GATE program, per se, (and the mid-average range English language art score wouldn't seem to support that), but I don't want the kid to become bored in math because the rest of the class is farther behind. I'm hoping that at the very least there will be some kind of enrichment material offered within the regular classroom setting, or an opportunity to advance further into the math curriculum independent of the other students in the class.
Has anyone else dealt with this issue? If so, how was it handled at your child's school?
