Abstract

Grade retention is a common practice in the United States; it is designed to fix educational discrepancies by providing a second opportunity to learn the same material. However, research shows that this practice does not help children become more successful in education. Therefore, preservice teachers must be provided with alterative techniques to support students who are below grade level through curriculum design and development. This paper provides a framework to guide elementary preservice teachers in developing mathematics curriculum supported by the use of technology to be used as an intervention when children are failing to achieve at grade level. The curriculum model follows a constructivist approach using technology as a tool to help guide investigations.
