No matter what the course, there are students enrolled who are underprepared and lack the critical knowledge necessary to be successful.  Yet the research is consistent that students can learn more than one year of content in one year of instruction.  So if we give students access, how do we successfully support them even when they seem to be misplaced?  This session will be led by a CPM Algebra 1 9th grade teacher in a school with a student population that consists of 85% on free and reduced lunch and over 70% minority all placed in heterogeneous classrooms.  Learn from his approach, how he works with CPM, and what is and isn't working to help his 9th grade students of all abilities have success in his Algebra 1 class.
