HELP Math Embeds Sheltered Instruction Directly Into Digital Content
HELP Math embeds specific research-based instructional strategies directly into the digital math content and specific support tools directly into the digital learning environment to scaffold the learning. Academic vocabulary and the development of background concept knowledge and prerequisite math skills are fundamental cornerstones of the program. Students can simultaneously see, hear and manipulate the math content. The program shelters learning and provides interactive support and feedback loops that encourage math content knowledge and math skill development, as well as math terms and general academic English acquisition.
