Elevate Math Summer School Program

Elevate Math Summer School Program

Elevate is a program run through the Silicon Valley Education Foundation. Its purpose is to preview upcoming math content for students for the next school year. Students work on math skills and growth mind set to build their math confidence. The seventh grade program was 19 total days and the 8th grade class was for a total of 24 days. It was a huge commitment for both the teachers and the students. Amy Hannon-Korynta taught the 7th grade course while Nicole Arias led the 8th graders. During the spring, the teachers attended 3 Saturday trainings in preparation for teaching their courses. A college mentor, Nancy Cabrera, was hired as part of the program as well. She worked with each of the classrooms and taught lessons as well. A field trip to UC Davis was part of the program for the 8th graders. Students left the program feeling more confident. One student wrote the following comment to his new math teacher this school year, “I’m bad at math but I recently got better during the summer.” This is an excellent example of growth mind set and how everyone can improve and get better at things.
