Reading Team Math
Reading Team Math is a Harlem-based math after school program for young children. We partner with the Reading Team, a non-profit organization that has been operating in Harlem since 2001 - it runs a highly effective literacy program that serves hundreds of children every year. Reading Team Math, initiated in 2017, seeks to do the same in math education.
Reading Team Math consists of professors, post-docs, graduate students, and undergraduates from Columbia University. The volunteer teachers worked with kindergarten and 1st grade students on math through workbooks, group activities, and math games. The plan is to follow the students through elementary school as the Reading Team literacy program does.
