i-Ready for Grades K–8 chosen as an evidence-based intervention for state-identified schools
In November, the Board approved i-Ready Diagnostic and i-Ready Instruction for reading and mathematics for Grades K–8 for its Evidence-Based Interventions for State-Identified Schools. Through these two approvals, schools within the nation’s second-largest district can use these programs to guide teacher instruction and support student growth.
In response to an RFP for instructional mathematics materials addressing the needs of ELs in Grades 6–8, Curriculum Associates worked with Council of the Great City Schools (CGCS) and its member districts to redesign its programs. Aligning program updates to the unique needs of ELs informed the newly updated Ready Mathematics for Grades 6–8, which will be available for Back to School 2019. The program includes powerful language-based activities that help students access, create, and express their mathematics understanding. It also includes strategic scaffolds to help ELs access rigorous grade-level mathematics instruction and achieve proficiency and growth. i-Ready, in conjunction with Ready Mathematics, was also approved by Los Angeles Unified to support ELs.
