    Unless mathematics teachers are generalists and have been trained in reading instruction, they don't see literacy as part of their skill set. More important, they don't appreciate that reading a mathematics text or problem is really very different from other types of reading, requiring specific strategies unique to mathematics. Often teachers can ask the right questions that will build on the previous knowledge of their students. However, there are also times when teachers must do more to guide students in the right direction. For example, certain formulas used in a high school Algebra II class would be much too difficult for high school students to prove.

    1. What learning strategies do junior high school students use most to tackle academic tasks? 2. Is there a difference between male and female students in their preferred learning strategies? 3.

Unfortunately, high-quality diversity training is not universally available.   Teaching Strategies. Teaching High-Level Math to Young Students. Giving Middle Schoolers High School Math. One class I created for a junior high program was an elementary algebra course. The class included eighth graders along with two seventh graders and even a sixth grader. particularly his book How Children Fail, which I cannot.
