TKES Focus - Academically Challenging Environment

Using Guided Questions to Probe Student Understanding in Math

Tip:

1. List standard(s) for the lesson/unit.

2. For each standard, think of questions you might ask that would uncover student understanding. Think of expected answers and how you would further question.

3. Use a Critical Thinking Wheel to help you formulate higher level questions.

Lucy Units and Clear Stickies - GAME Changer!

How do you plan for and make each session yours? Do you write in or highlight your book (that's ok)? I just found an option that I think is a game changer to help organize Lucy lessons (really any lesson). CLEAR STICKY NOTES! View the clip below to see how this teacher uses clear stickies and clear pockets to organize her Lucy lessons. There is also a link below from Amazon.com to purchase these if you wish! OMG!
