More About the Briefs
These briefs summarize research on five strategies being implemented by HSGI grantees that help struggling students succeed in Algebra I. The PSSA project includes a forum for practitioners—district curriculum developers/administrators and teachers—to make connections between the findings from the research briefs and their daily work, with the results of these discussions published in a series of perspective briefs, and includes profiles of practices that provide an in-depth look at implementation of these five strategies.
