Florida International University's Center for Urban Education and Innovation in the College of Education and the Algebra Project have created a model for accelerated learning for disenfranchised children. The program includes mathematics instruction using university researchers in high school classrooms, supplemented with after-school enhanced reading and writing instruction. Tutoring, mentoring, experiential learning and an intensive residential summer institute provide a model for engaging low-performing high school students.
