Do Now Thinking about the Core Practices on the right, brainstorm one success and one challenge you are having in your classroom since our first PD session on Number Strings. •   Teach Towards an Instructional Goal –   Is there a goal present? –   Is the goal introduced in a student-friendly way? –   Are problems and questions aligned to instructional goal? –   Does the teacher ask linking questions? •   Orient Students to Content –   Does string start with low barrier to entry question? –   Does the board work help students understand content? –   Does teacher incorporate student voice? –   Are models used, if appropriate?
