At times, I was frustrated teaching more challenging content when it was obvious many in the class needed extra help on easier stuff. I developed this idea of a Boot Camp to reinforce those skills, but allowing others to accelerate on their own!
Students will take a Pre-Assessment and will be assigned a level. Each level is thematically tied with a rank in the Army. So while the Levels of the problems get more challenging, they achieve a higher rank in the army.
After students master a level, they are signed off and promoted to the next level. Students intrinsically strive to get up a level and are innately curious about the next one.
There are 9 main levels of problems, thus 9 practice assignments included. For each level 2 mastery tests are included for a total of 18. Over 200 problems included overall!
When I do this I devote 3-5 days in class of small group practice, targeted instruction, and mastery testing. It's Boot Camp after all! You could just as easily use these assignments for homework or classwork without the Boot Camp experience.
