Here is a list of our social media sites so we can stay connected:

As you know, each week we tackle a new problem that you sent in. Then, we match that problem with a teaching tool that can help. We are featuring a different tool this week based on the problem sent in from Jen from CT, a 6th grade reading teacher at Mansfield Middle School:

Problem of the Week  – Students are successful at stating an opinion or thought and then giving the appropriate text evidence as support. However, they are struggling to explain why the evidence supports their opinion or thought. They are struggling with analysis of evidence.

Teaching Tool of the Week – A Micro-Progression 

You can find a download of the teaching tool here.
