Word problems are a big part of any Math standardized test our students take. Be it on PARCC or NWEA, this is an area where students often struggle greatly. A method aimed at helping students master word problems is called the Three Reads strategy. It is essentially a close read that allows students to focus on something specific each time they read the word problem. I did not create the method, but I noticed that there was little in the form of useful graphic organizers. I created this form in order to make that method more useful to me. This can be used on any type of word problem and for any grade level.
