10 A Day
10 A Day is a proven philosophy and program to move students into higher level thinking and deep understanding of grade level content while giving them strategies they can carry through life. With the combination of student response technology and pedagogical reform, the program provides students and teachers with immediate feedback to correct errors and re-teach as needed so that students progress toward mastery.
The 10 A Day approach shifts the teacher's role to that of a coach. With effective teaching that includes explicit instruction in rules, steps and strategies, ALL students can learn. Mastery requires multiple practice sessions, so fast-paced daily review with 10 A DAY enables students to achieve mastery through distributed standards practice throughout the year. This strategy increases student engagement in the learning process as well as provides opportunity for students to achieve the learning objectives. This strategy is also highly effective for engaging students by checking for understanding during the learning process.
