The Paras and Parents Partnership is a research project which seeks to provide parents with accessible ways to support their children’s math learning. To accomplish this, we are leveraging paraeducators who participated in a prior Math PD (DRK12 Doing the Math) to collaboratively create bilingual videos which model PreK-1st grade math activities and strategies that families can do at home. Through this process we also hope to build paraeducators confidence and pedagogical content knowledge in mathematics through bi-weekly professional development. Once videos are developed, social media platforms such as WhatsApps are used to both share videos and collect feedback from families.

Research Activity

To study the impact of this research project, data is being collected from participating paraeducators and parents through focus groups, surveys, social media, and observations.


This project is in the process of collecting data.
