Many of our students struggle with decoding what they have read. This impacts them across content areas, especially in math story problems. We developed this tool to help our students gain skills, confidence and mastery in decoding and annotating a text. At our school our ELA and Math departments work together using this tool to help our students find many ways to understand what they are reading. Hope it helps you and your students, too! It can be used in and content area and is meant to be adapted for interdisciplinary use.
Included is letter, template, example and ten sample questions that can be re-used many times over.
