Course Guiding Question:

Course Guiding Questions

How can I monitor the level of understanding in my students, predict misconceptions they may have in my planning, and build an action plan for addressing misconceptions and re-teaching concepts so that all of my elementary students can be successful in math?

Loved this course!

We have some state testing coming up and I’m so excited to try some of these checking for understanding strategies for our review! I have a much better idea of how I can re-teach concepts that I know students will be struggling with, and I have a good plan for how to keep track of what my students know!
