At KIPP Ascend Charter School students go to school for 9 &frac12; hours a day and four weeks in the summer, they attend Saturday school twice a month, and complete two hours of homework every night. They work extremely hard in order to "climb the mountain" to college. Students typically enter KIPP as a fifth grader performing at the third or fourth grade level. In one year, our goal is to increase fifth grade achievement to grade level. The next three years at KIPP should push students beyond grade level and prepare them to enter the best high schools and colleges in the United States. In order to target individual student needs, we have begun Learning Teams. Learning Teams is a fifty-minute session held each day. It is designed to target student needs by giving students more instruction on the subject and skills they are lacking. The effectiveness of Math Learning Team could be greatly increased with the use of the Saxon Math Test and Practice Generator. The generator is a CD produced in conjunction with the textbook series KIPP is currently using. The CD allows the instructor to customize practice for each individual&#25263; needs. Before Learning Teams the instructor creates a lesson for each student. The lesson remediates the skills that were not mastered or extend the student&#25263; knowledge of math. Student mastery and confidence will increase with the use of the CD. Our school is already using this highly effective software for 5th grade students, but would benefit greatly from the 6th, 7th and Algebra 1 software, as well. Thank you for your consideration!
