Numeracy Instructional Units

Numeracy Instructional Units

This numeracy curriculum that blends numeracy with life skills themes was made possible by an EL Civics grant (2011-2013) through the Minnesota Department of Education.

Instructional units and teaching materials were designed by

  • Lia Conklin Olson.

Special thanks to the following teachers for their contributions:

  • Louella Francisco for benchmark alignment with the Massachusettes Numeracy curriculum during the 2012-2013 development phase.
  • Anne Skoglund for piloting the teaching materials and providing feedback (2011-2013).
  • Marcie Vaiphei for lesson plans and benchmark alignment with the Massachusettes Numeracy curriculum during the 2011-2012 development phase.
  • Mollie Cooper for brainstorming ideas and finding supplemental materials.
  • Jennifer Asp for creating a few of the activities during the 2009-2010 EL Civics grant.
