Dr. Kevin Roper, Professor of Mathematics, and Dr. Lynn Roper, Assistant Professor of Special Education, performed a consultation for Newell High School in Jamaica on the invitation of the school board chairman and the principal. The school has been identified as a school “at risk,” particularly in mathematics and English. They observed on two days and were invited by the principal to run a faculty development session on a third day. Kevin observed mathematics classes, and Lynn observed English and mathematics classes and spoke with “instructional coaches.” The problems there are significant, but the administration and faculty were welcoming. There was not much that could be done in a three-day visit, so they brought a message of encouragement to press on using instructional differentiation and maximizing the time spent with the students. They are hopeful an ongoing relationship will emerge.
