MpowR Report 2013-2014 Whitney Padilla & Jordan Harbaugh
MpowR Program – Basics 3 clubs first ½ of year, 4 clubs in 2 nd half. Each club met 2x/ week, on Monday + Wednesday, or Tuesday or Thursday. Each club met from 3:45 - 5:15 10 minutes for snack, 30 min for homework, 20 min for reading, 20 for activity, 10 for cleanup. Average = 20 students per club
Increased Teamwork with Schools Districts Coordinators met with principals to go over the Common Core Curriculum for each grade. What is Common Core? Worksheets hand-picked for student deficiencies and focused on Common Core areas.
Activity Time Now focused on math and reading, will continue in ‘14-’15. Reading Examples: Dominoes with rhyming words/ rhyming bingo, Word Hat, Sentence Strips. Math Examples: Charts/graphs from M&M bags, hopscotch to learn mult. Tables & number patterns, reading analog clocks
Looking Forward Data collection proves effectiveness of programs 93% of students w/ 2 years in MpowR programs will improve GPA by an average of 0.97 grade points!! Continuity / continuation of programs important for student success.
Looking Forward Despite overall gains, many students still struggling studying in their second language. Could use more staff (2-3 staff per site not enough) or staff volunteer recruiter, both would make program more effective.
Looking Forward Education is extremely important for a prosperous, dignified life. We would love to provide these programs at all of our sites.
