The social-emotional support framework known as Productive Persistence is embedded in every Quantway and Statway course. These supports instill in students the belief that they’re capable of learning and succeeding in math. They also foster belonging and a culture of community among students.
In this short webinar, Rachel Beattie, our Director of Productive Persistence, will share the research behind these supports, provide examples of their application, and describe how the impacts of these supports are measured and used for instruction.
