Description:

With their partners at the Dana Center, out of the University of Texas at Austin, and publishing/technology company Agile Mind, Inc., the LSRI team developed and studied a comprehensive program for underprepared ninth-graders.  The IA approach involves surrounding a rich algebra core with supports to help students be successful. These supports include incorporating into the curriculum ideas from social psychology, such as the theory of malleable intelligence—the idea that a person can grow his or her intelligence with effective effort.
