Billions of dollars are spent annually in response to widespread underachievement in areas of math and reading (National Assessment of Education Progress, 2003). Efficacy of these remedial academic programs is often poorly documented and few programs are designed to address individual needs (Kahne, Nagaoka, Brown, O'Brien, Quinn, a Thiede, 2001; Granger, Durlak, Yohalem, a Reisner, 2007). Furthermore, many students do not benefit from these programs due to behavior deficits that impact learning (Granger et al., 2007). The Challenging Horizons Program (CHP) is an evidence-based after-school program that provides an effective framework for engaging students with behavior deficits in learning activities (Langberg, Smith, Bogle, Schmidt, Cole, a Pender, 2006).of math word problem solving skills to unfamiliar problems (Fuchs, et al., 2002). In 2002, Fuchs ... Pictograph problems involved solving a math problem using pictures (e.g., addition or multiplication problems using graphs). In the Fuchs and anbsp;...
