Griffin, Cynthia C.; Dana, Nancy F.; Pape, Stephen J.; Algina, James; Bae, Jungah; Prosser, Sherri K.; League, Martha B. – Teacher Education and Special Education, 2018
Enhancing all students' academic performance continues to be a national priority, and although achievement gains have been made overtime, shortfalls in mathematics learning for students with disabilities (SWD) remain. Research reveals that a substantial portion of the variability in students' mathematics achievement gains is due to the teacher. To…
