Title: What's the Question Again?
Description: This lesson focuses on problem solving strategies with word problems that are 2 or more steps. Students are forced through the strategies to focus on the content of a problem before attempting to answer the "question" which tells what they are to solve. Visualization and communication are reinforced throughout the lesson. The strategies are generic. Included are problems for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade computation. However, these same strategies can be used for all grade levels. This is a College- and Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.
