A key component of pathways is providing students with support services, which include the supplemental instruction and materials necessary to excel in a rigorous academic program. The unfortunate reality is that some students enter high school lacking fundamental mathematics and literacy skills, making it difficult for them to keep up with high school level work. To address this issue, supplemental instruction must move beyond a reiteration of the original material and offer new ways for students to master these subjects.
For example, ConnectEd has designed an engaging curriculum to help prepare students for success in college-preparatory high school mathematics. The project-based curriculum aims to increase students’ motivation to learn and their retention of mathematics skills and concepts through activities such as designing a wind turbine or building a combination lock. Through their hands-on math lessons students learn basic skills, as well as problem solving and communication skills.
