Literacy is a struggle for many of my students. Breaking down word problems is one of the most difficult tasks. Even when they know the math, they have a hard time understanding when to use what they know.
This is what I've been using, but I haven't been consistent enough to be sure it's really helping.
At the least, it's prompted me to ask -- what do you use to support students who struggle with literacy in math class??
By next year, I hope all my students can say "I got 99 problems, but word problems ain't one.." #cornyteacher
