Based on research based practices the participants will collaboratively plan and adapt accessible math lessons and enact teaching practices and instructional strategies based on student strengths and needs. 

Participants will learn to:
-Improve student learning by making math more accessible.
-Address students" needs and build on their strengths.
-Increase student success and independence.
-Improve student outcomes in math without losing the integrity of the math or setting
