If your school is planning to provide additional support for students during this summer, Delta Math readiness screeners and intervention lessons can help teachers focus on high priority readiness standards for the next grade level and measure the impact of the additional summer support. Paper resources to screen and generate a course overview report are available for free. The online screening fee is $1 per student if your school district currently uses Delta Math online screeners and reports.
Intervention lessons, based on an 8-day intervention cycle, are free and available for each readiness standard. The Tier 2 Intervention Cycle Overview support video highlights how the lessons integrate the following evidence-based recommendations: explicit instruction that is systematic, visual representations of mathematical ideas, progress monitoring, and motivational strategies such as personal goal setting and visually charting daily progress.
The concrete-representational-abstract learning model is the foundation for both tier 2 and tier 3 lessons. The Tier 2 lessons encourage students to build the math using physical manipulatives in session 2, draw the actions of the physical manipulatives in session 3, and write their understanding using numbers and symbols in session 4.
Tier 3 lessons stretch the C-R-A learning progression so that more time is spent using manipulatives before transitioning to drawing the math and then using numbers and symbols to represent mental imagery.
