3 Modes of Delivery of Word Problems

Modeling with Interactive Questioning

The teacher models the whole process with interactive questioning, some choral response, “talk moves” such as “Explain Monique’s thinking to your partner.” After completing the problem, students might reflect with a partner on the steps the class used to solve the problem.“Students, think back on what we did to solve this problem. What did we do first?” etc. Students might then be given the same or similar problem or set of problems to solve immediately or for homework.

Guided Practice

Each student has a copy of the question. Though guided by the teacher, they work independently at times and then come together again. Timing is important. Students might hear, “You have 2 minutes to do your drawing.” Or “Put your pencils down. Time to work together again.”The debrief might include selecting different student work to share.

Independent Practice

The students are given a problem to solve and possibly a designated amount of time to solve it. The teacher circulates, supports, and is thinking about which student work to show to support the mathematical objectives of the lesson. When sharing student work, students are encouraged to think about the work with questions such as, “What do you see Jeremy did?” “What is the same about Jeremy’s work and Sara’s work?” “How did Jeremy show the 3/7 of the students?” “How does that relate to Sara’s equations?” “Turn to your partner and compare your way of solving the problem to theirs.”
