Raphael Bonhomme, a Turner Elementary School teacher, could not be more proud of the six students on the first-ever Flagway team to represent the District of Columbia. Neither could WTU President Elizabeth Davis.
Flagway™ was developed as part of the Algebra Project by Civil Rights icon Dr. Robert Parris Moses (Bob Moses), who won a MacArthur Foundation “genius” award for his work. Flagway is an exciting, action-packed game through which students can learn basic mathematical concepts. Moses developed it especially for elementary and middle school students who, through being neglected by many school systems, have been relegated to the lowest quartile.
Over the past two years, partnering with Young People’s Project (YPP), the WTU has offered DCPS teachers several FlagwayTM training courses.
