"There is a considerable body of research that suggests that the ability of a teacher to teach may be one of the most important variables determining what and how well students learn. For this reason we have made best practices in math and science teaching an integral part of the project since its inception. These include areas such as inquiry learning, multiple intelligences, and alternative assessment."
