About Model Teaching Quick Courses:

Quick Course Logo

Model Teaching Quick Courses are cost-effective, quick PD for teachers with action items, ready-to-go resources, and specific content that gets straight to the point. Our concise, in-depth lessons focus on a narrow topic that provides a holistic presentation of key concepts you can learn and be ready to implement in one hour or less. You can choose to watch the video lesson, read the downloadable article lesson, or both, giving you the flexibility to continue your professional learning in the format of your choice. While perfect for individual learning, these courses are also great for PLCs and other school-related staff development, training, and self-paced online instruction.

This was such a quick and effective review of some great strategies to help my students tackle math word problems.  I loved the annotation strategies and handy tools you provided.  Can’t wait to show this to my students- especially the ones who really struggle with word-based problems and who really do know the math but have difficulty making that connection in word format.  Thank you!!
