Greetings Teachers and Colleagues,
Teacher math can be difficult for even the most seasoned teacher, but help is on the way. Using DOK level strategies from levels 1-4, your students can become a wiz at solving word problems. My students have become proficient in determining:
Tier 3 Vocabulary
Operation Word Clues
Creating plans to solve the problem
Identifying what operations will be needed to solve the problem.
Using these simple strategies, my students have been able to solve problems while mastering procedural knowledge learned during direct teaching sessions.
You can print the first page as well and create a poster to hang in your class to remind them of the steps they need to take as well.
