Can Kagan structures be implemented in middle school mathematics?
if so How and why would that be beneficial? and finally how could you asses the impact these structures would have on the students learning?

Kagan structures can DEFINITELY be implemented in middle school mathematics!! How would it be beneficial? All kids would be engaged, and active in the learning environment! Plus, Kagan structures provide an opportunity for students to get immediate feedback, peer support and coaching during the learning process. Impact can be determined by tests, grades and even state assessments. Go to our website and click on free articles. You will read articles from teachers regarding the impact the structures have had in their schools. There is an article about a 5th grade math class where the author (Lisa Cline) documented significant gains for her doctoral project. If you haven't been to a training, you need to get to one. You will be sold. Check our our secondary math workshops!
