Is your school struggling with any of the following?
- Attendance (in-person or online);
- Engagement (i.e. students actually completing their work);
- Connectivity (Internet or device access);
- Teachers’ time demands;
- Thinking there needs to be more culturally reflective curriculum that reflects your students
Growing Math is a free, new platform to provide educators the tools and training they need to best serve students in tribal areas, rural communities and urban cities with Indigenous populations.
We are looking for schools to participate in the Growing Math project, which will provide classroom-ready lessons and games that combine math, Indigenous culture and agricultural science. These standards-aligned lesson plans can be easily used for in-person instruction, in a hybrid model or for distance learning. The project also includes teacher training/professional development and technical support.
At this time, Growing Math is available for teachers/students Grades 3-8 at schools in six states: Arizona, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon and South Dakota. Growing Math is currently accepting sign ups from schools and Title VII programs in those states.
For schools that meet the criteria, there is no cost to participate as the project is fully funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and developed by 7 Generation Games. The project includes the opportunity for pilot participants to receive a teacher stipend for their time.
Interested schools should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Growing Math is funded by a $1 million COVID-19 Rapid Response grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to create solutions to the challenges arising in education during the global pandemic
