My philosophy on teaching is that if kids can’t learn the way we teach, we must teach them the way they learn.
The purpose of this guide is to help your students become independent at determining how to solve a math word problem, rather than relying on a graphic organizer that is provided for them. The design of this guide is simple, so that, through visual cues, students can easily recall each section, identify its function and reproduce it on a blank page.
Rather than making photocopies, I display it on my SMART Board, and have my students draw it on their slates (individual white boards): Divide the slate into four sections, draw a question mark, light bulb, four operations, and a check mark. They should be practiced at recreating it themselves right from the start.
