Teaching Math to My Scholars: Inner City Middle School Students
Iyer, Ranjani; Pitts, Joseph
Journal of Education and Learning, v6 n3 p243-249 2017
Teaching in an inner city school requires classroom management, resilience, and most importantly strategies to promote learning and growth. There is a constant need for acceleration in student growth in core subjects, especially Math. A blended learning model can be an effective option for schools to personalize learning experiences for students and cater to individual needs for effective learning. Blended learning classes produce statistically better results than their face-to-face, non-hybrid equivalents (U.S. Department of Education, 2010). The purpose of this article is to analyze student demographics as it relates to student performance in an inner city school. As a teacher, you probably need to be one of the most flexible people in the world (Featherstone et al., 1997). Educators need to use learning activities that are both fun and relevant to the students' present body of knowledge to master and comprehend math skills. The authors discuss strategies that can be utilized to enhance and promote student performance and growth. Also, elements of educational methodology based on the author's experience are discussed and its influences on student performance.
