Dugan Elementary believes that all students should have access to varying text complexities tailored to their individual needs. Achieve3000 allows students to experience a challenge with complex, relevant, authentic, non-fiction text. Simultaneously, students develop their literacy and content skills while being assessed with differentiated articles based on a personalized Lexile level. Instantly, teachers have the ability to diagnose and close reading level gaps.
Dugan Elementary believes in building a deep conceptual understanding of mathematics for all students. Mind Research's platform, STMath, allows students to fulfill this goal through rigorous puzzles and creative problem solving that, in the end, motivates and challenges students. By approaching mathematics from a visual learning aspect, students can be better equipped to tackle unfamiliar problems, recognize patterns, and build a deeper conceptual understanding. Additionally, STMath provides personalized pathways of interconnected challenges allowing for differentiated instruction for each individual student.
Being a web-based program, STMath will be utilized both in school and at home. Here are some links that will offer some more information about the program as well as ways that you can become involved in assisting your child.
