SEDL Researchers Looking for Study Volunteers
Researchers at SEDL and the University of Wisconsin-Madison are undertaking a study that will determine the impact of Imagine It!, an Open Court Reading program, and Everyday Mathematics on teacher practices and student academic achievement. They are currently looking for 15 school districts throughout the nation to participate in the study.
To be eligible to participate, districts need to have at least four elementary schools containing kindergarten through fifth grade that are willing to implement either Imagine It! or Everyday Mathematics. These schools must have at least 44 students in each grade included in the study (K–5). Participating schools will receive approximately $3,200 worth of Imagine It! or Everyday Mathematics materials for each classroom as well as training and technical support for the duration of the study. By participating, schools are taking action that may increase students’ performance on state-mandated reading and math assessments.
The study begins in the 2011–2012 school year and will last for 3 years. Learn more about the study by visiting research.sedl.org/ocr-em/. If you have questions or would like to nominate your district, contact Dewi Smith at (800) 476-6861 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
