This week, the Odessa American published a story about the role of Teach to One in helping Ector County (ECISD) students address unfinished learning.
Math director Cinda Brown said that because students were already familiar with Teach to One and its incentive systems, their desire to do well hasn’t waned.
“We’ve had positive feedback from all of our kids and all of our parents,” said Brown, with one parent claiming that “math has been the least stressful subject” to study at home.
“A lot of our sixth grade students were showing gaps and performing at a third, fourth grade math level,” according to ECISD Blended Learning Coordinator Lauren Tavarez, but mid-year assessments showed that many of the students had grown a full grade level or more. “With blended learning and with Teach to One, the students are able to go on and work (and move on if they’re ready). We’ve got some students who are learning at a 10th and 11th grade level.”
“Teach to One has the right combination of digital tools and face-to-face interaction that students need with their teacher and each other.”
