"The Achievement Gap" and real impacts

Posted on August 9, 2007 at 9:35pm 0 Comments

on my social desktop. This is the third part of the series which takes

concepts introduced by "'The Achievement Gap' and culture", and

distinguishes between established methods for addressing the problem

and making real changes. In my last article I promised to go more into

technology, but it seems that the problem I'm addressing needs more

Hi Jared. I was wondering if your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!

Kind regards form México
