ASSISTments is seeking diverse 7th grade math teachers with experience using OpenUp, Illustrative Math, Engage NY and/or Eureka Math for a paid opportunity to support the development of two new features within our platform. We enthusiastically welcome candidates of diverse backgrounds and are committed to recruiting a cohort of teachers that reflects the communities of students we serve.
What will I be working on?:
As an Instructional Recommendations Teacher Collaborator, your time will primarily be spent reviewing common wrong answers to problems in OpenUp, Illustrative Math, Engage NY and/or Eureka Math, and generating two kinds of messages that will appear within ASSISTments to support math learning- Instructional Recommendations for teachers, and Common Wrong Answer feedback for students.
Instructional Recommendations are short tips for how teachers can best address student misconceptions based on the common wrong answers for that problem.
Common Wrong Answer Feedback provides students with helpful feedback on their response, so they can learn from their error and get the problem right the next time.
