Blended Learning Innovations Abstract


Only 4.9% of low
-
income students in Wisconsin took at
least one AP Exam in 2007, compared
to overall Wisconsin student participation of 23.9%. Access to AP courses for many low
-
income
students is hampered by the lack of availability of courses in their schools, lack of an articulated
curriculum from middle sc
hool through high school to prepare them for the rigor of AP courses, and
lack of adequate support systems to ensure their success.

This project,
Blended Learning Innovations: Build
ing A Pipeline for Equity and Access,

will
ta
rget

20 high schools and 29 middle schools, representing a total of eight
een school districts.
Thirteen
of the eighteen school districts are small and rural, three are tribal schools, and two are
urban. A combined total of 16,615 high school students (grades
9
-
12) and a combined total of 10,063
middle school students (grades 6
-
8) are enrolled in the targeted schools. Each school has a high rate
of poverty, ranging from 40%
-

83%. Over one
-
half (55%) of the targeted high schools offer 2 or
fewer AP courses to

students (8 offer zero).

Several strategies are included in the project to increase access and equity for students.
These include vertical and horizontal team training for classroom teachers, department chairs, school
counselors, and building administrat
ors; student support systems; and several options for delivery of
AP courses to maximize flexibility.


The project includes a theoretically robust, yet practical evaluation design that will help guide,
refine, and enhance the project’s implementation in
-
s
tate and

provide a rich evidence base for
replication in other Wisconsin schools or nationally.

Differentiated Instruction

for Middle School
Language Arts

Monday, June 28, 2010 9:00 am and 1:00 pm

Room

Presenter: Alyce Hunter


Workshop Description
:
The focus of this one
-
day workshop is differentiated class
room strategies that
allow all
students access to high
-
level language

arts content. Although the activities can be modified

for high school students, the content is more appropriate for a middle school audience. High

school teachers who are part of an AP Vertical Team in English benefit from this workshop by

modifying the
strategies for their students. Administrators might be interested in the strategies

as they can be applied to all disciplines. At the end of the workshop, participants will be able

to apply differentiated instruction strategies to product, process, and con
tent in their language

arts curriculum; understand why it is important to build a strong relationship with students;

understand the need to assess students continually; understand how to present all students with

an equally challenging curriculum; and empo
wer students to take charge of their own learning.
