How can educators ensure that middle school students are engaged and driven to master math concepts? This enlightening edWebinar introduces you to the winning strategies of the Harlem Children’s Zone®, which was founded with the vision of disrupting the cycle of intergenerational poverty by offering students the support they need to succeed from pre-K through college to become productive, self-sustaining adults.

Watch and learn how HCZ does this on an unprecedented scale, working with over 14,000 youth, many of them facing significant socio-economic and academic challenges. In order to achieve this vision, the HCZ team employs a unique set of strategies and best practices while leveraging data to provide individualized and timely support.

Over the past two years, HCZ has used a remote learning platform to support its middle school math instruction. This platform engages students through an AI-driven, rich curriculum while providing teachers and school leaders with the real-time progress and performance of all students, helping each student achieve their individual learning objectives.

Watch this fascinating presentation as Geoffrey Canada shares Harlem Children’s Zone’s model for success and how this remote learning platform has helped the HCZ team keep its middle school students on track in mathematics.

Viewers will walk away from this edWebinar with newfound knowledge of:

  • The HCZ model and how it has found unprecedented success in some of the most challenging environments
  • Teaching and learning strategies proven to be successful in remote learning classrooms
  • How the HCZ team has leveraged a remote learning platform to keep its students on track

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to middle school teachers, school and district leaders, directors of curriculum, math coaches, Title 1 math coaches, after school directors, and summer school directors.
