University of California, Irvine

Buena Park School District's partnership with the University of California, Irvine (UCI) puts doctoral students into classrooms to observe and share feedback for improving instruction. This partnership is funded by a grant from the William T. Grant Foundation. For the duration of the grant, three doctoral students from UCI will regularly visit Whitaker and Gilbert schools to observe and report on math lessons while providing instructional support to classroom teachers. The UCI team also works with families by holding community talks to showcase everyday ways they can teach math, such as buying food at a grocery store, finding batting averages during Dodgers baseball games, or using fractions with ingredients while making dinner.
