  2. 2. Deep Reading Brittany encourages deep reading of texts by posing text-based questions to students after reading, and helping them to develop strategies for going back through the text as they look for evidence to support their responses. Students engage with a rigorous text and respond to text-based questions.
  3. 3. Math Problem Solving Brittany engages all students in math problem solving activities that require perseverance in working through multiple steps. Students are taught the steps of problem solving that involve determining what the question is, identifying given information, missing information, developing a plan for solving, and evaluating their solution.
  4. 4. STEM Instruction Brittany incorporates STEM instruction and learning as a way to challenge students. As planning for the 2013/14 school year got under way, Brittany proposed to her 1st grade team that they plan for monthly STEM instruction. Her teammates were quick to get on board with the idea and Brittany led the way for planning activities and collecting needed materials. 1st grade students love their STEM weeks and have been applying cross-curricular knowledge to real world scenarios. Check out our STEM projects!
