This set of five detailed lesson plans launches a four-week systematic plan for introducing the Common Core Math Practices through problem-solving. "Building a Community of Persevering Problem-Solvers" is the focus of Week 1. Written in a step-by-step format, each of the five lessons can be implemented in one day or over multiple days based on the grade level and needs of your class.
Big ideas covered in Week 1 include laying the foundation for understanding the importance of math, setting excellent listening expectations, selection and management of math tools, learner responsibilities, making sense of problems, persevering, and strategies for independent evaluation of student work.
This unit contains over 30 pages of detailed lesson plans, teaching notes, discussion guides and sample anchor charts.
