INTRODUCTION

Louisiana’s Algebra I Online Project, approaching its seventh year of implementation, provides Louisiana
students with a certified Algebra I instructor and a high quality Algebra I curriculum that is delivered
through a web-based course. This project, a part of the Louisiana Virtual School (LVS), is designed to
target those rural and urban areas having schools with one or more sections of Algebra I being taught by
an uncertified teacher. In addition, districts desiring to provide certified teachers access to pedagogy
training and mentoring in order to build capacity for strong mathematics instruction are eligible to
participate. This project also provides the uncertified mathematics teacher professional development
opportunities that will assist with the facilitation of the in-class Algebra learning activities for students and
that will support their efforts toward mathematics certification.

This application packet outlines the details of the project and provides information as to the
responsibilities of the districts/schools participating. You are encouraged to utilize the resources of the
Algebra I Online Project as well as the LVS. These projects provide opportunities to explore ways that
instructional technology can support the achievement of our students.

PROGRAM GOALS

Primary Goal:
To provide students, particularly those in rural and urban areas experiencing a shortage in mathematics
teachers, with a certified and qualified Algebra I instructor and a high quality Algebra I curriculum that is
delivered through a web-based course.

Secondary Goal:
To provide the in-class teacher with (a) the opportunity to extend his/her knowledge, understanding, and
skills for teaching Algebra I, (b) support/tools needed to facilitate the in-class algebra learning activities of
the students, and (c) professional development opportunities that will support his/her efforts toward
mathematics certification.

OVERVIEW

Eligible Applicants
This project is designed to specifically target those rural and urban areas experiencing a shortage in
certified mathematics teachers. However, a district wishing to participate that does not fall into this
category may apply. Selection to participate in the project will be based upon a district’s demonstrated
need in the area of certified mathematics teachers and/or the need to provide access to pedagogy
training and mentoring in order to build capacity for strong mathematics instruction.

Applicant Responsibilities and Commitments
Superintendents and district/school staff of participating systems must agree to all assurances on the
Information/Demographics Page and Assurances Page and provide the necessary signatures.

                                 Frequently Asked Questions

     What is the Algebra I Online Project?
This exciting project, a part of the Louisiana Virtual School (LVS), is a Department of Education
initiative that provides Louisiana students with a certified and qualified Algebra I instructor and with a
high quality Algebra I curriculum through a year-long, web-based course. This new distance learning
opportunity utilizes the web, e-mail, and other online and offline resources to provide algebra
instruction to students across the state.

   Whom does this project target?
The Algebra I Online Project targets rural and urban districts having schools with one or more
sections of Algebra I being taught by an uncertified mathematics teacher. However, districts
demonstrating a need to provide access to pedagogy training and mentoring in order to build
capacity for strong mathematics instruction for teachers in their district may also apply.

    What is required for a district to participate?
Districts must commit to providing the technical infrastructure needed to implement an online class
for one or more sections of Algebra I. Each student participating in the project will need access to a
multimedia computer connected to the Internet every day in class. The district must also identify a
teacher assigned to the Algebra I course who is committed to the project and agrees to provide
release time for them to participate in as many as four professional development activities (no more
than 1 day per quarter).

    What help and support will the in-class teacher participants and students receive?
The in-class teacher will serve an integral role in the project as the site-based facilitator and co-
instructor. A goal of the project is to provide the in-class teacher with (a) the opportunity to extend
his/her knowledge of Algebra I and his/her understanding and skills for teaching Algebra I and (b)
with the support/tools needed to facilitate the in-class algebra learning activities. Throughout this
project the in-class teacher will be engaged in professional development opportunities designed to
assist with classroom instruction and that will support their efforts towards secondary mathematics
certification.

Students will receive information about the project to help them understand the nature of the course
and online learning. They will benefit by having two teachers: the certified online teacher and the in-
class teacher, who will facilitate the in-class algebra learning activities. Students also will utilize
technologies, such as the graphing calculator, graphic pen, e-mail, etc.

   Who are the online teachers? How were they selected?
The online teachers are secondary certified mathematics teachers who were identified based on their
outstanding teaching credentials. These teachers will provide year-long instruction to students and
support/mentor the in-class teacher throughout the year.

    How does the coursework compare with traditional Algebra I courses?
Students should not expect that there will be less to do than in the regular classroom since the
course must adhere to the Louisiana standards and benchmarks. The nature of the online course is
completely different from the traditional classroom environment. However, the Algebra I Online
course offers two appealing benefits: flexibility with scheduling and location. There is flexibility with
scheduling and location, and the delivery of instruction can be provided via online, textbook, and/or
electronic textbook.




                                                 16
     What type of student is best suited for online learning?
It is highly recommended that a district assess whether or not the Algebra I Online project will fit their
needs. Research and experience have shown that in order to be a successful online learner,
students must cultivate certain characteristics. They include:
      Ability to learn independently
      Effective written communication skills
      Self-motivation and discipline
      Efficient time management skills

These characteristics are the same as those for successful learning under any environment but are
especially important in an online environment where the learning is more self-driven. These
characteristics are useful as a guide in identifying the successful student candidate, but are not
required in order to participate.

    How does a student enroll in the Algebra I project?
All students enroll in the Algebra I project through their district. Each district participating in the
project must designate a district coordinator who will oversee the registration process with school
counselors/principals.

    How are grades determined for the online course?
The online teacher will assign a mid-term and final letter grade and send it to the student’s
district/school.

   Are middle school students who successfully complete Algebra I eligible to earn Carnegie
unit?
Middle school students are eligible to earn a Carnegie unit for Algebra I.

   What are the benefits to the district, school, and students?
There are several benefits to participating in the Algebra I Project. By participating:
        Districts/Schools will have a certified teacher providing online instruction to students (For
           the Annual School Report and Accountability purposes, the teacher for record is the
           certified teacher, rather than the uncertified onsite teacher).
        The uncertified teacher will receive support/mentoring throughout the project and
           participates in a strong professional development program (face-to-face and online) that
           will build capacity for strong mathematics instruction while they are pursuing secondary
           mathematics certification.
        Students will have access to a high quality, technology-supported Algebra I course,
           developed by a team of outstanding mathematics educators.

    How can I find out more about the project?
