You Want To Play A Leadership Role In Making ASSISTments As Awesome As It Can Be For Other Teachers And Students
You can commit as little as 45 minutes to a study. The time commitment is really flexible, depending on the study. you get to decide what interests you.
I love using science and data to help guide my work in terms of what works and what could be done better. My work with ASSISTments on the study enabled me to enhance my lessons and the impact was truly amazing! The students have made unbelievable gains that we would not have seen had we not been part of the research.
I loved this teacher leadership opportunity to give feedback on a program I use, and where my voice as a practitioner is valued. As the only 7 and 8th grade math teacher in my school, joining a research project gave me the chanc to collaborate with teachers who use the same content. Joining this community breaks down silos by seeing how other teachers are responding to the same challenges and seeing what happening in classrooms across the country.
