How are you enhancing instruction with Math Practice #1?

Comment below on how you are encouraging students to:
  • Explain the problem
  • Organize information
  • Persevere while working through rigorous situations
  • Monitor their work - are they on the right track
  • Change their plan if things are not working out
  • Ask themselves, "does this make sense?"
  • Check their work for correctness
  • Evaluate what worked - what could we have done better?

Below are some questions that teachers can prompt students with to encourage Math Practice #1.
  • How would you describe the problem in your own words?
  • What information do you have? 
  • What do you need to find out?
  • What strategies are you going to use?
  • Can you think of another method that might have worked?
  • Can you explain what you have done so far?  
  • What else is there to do?
