Included is a three-phase lesson structure (adapted from Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics) that helps teachers make sure they are covering—and then internalizing—the parts of an effective and engaging real-world math lesson. (teachingchannel.org)**Mathematics Instructional Practice Guide: Coaching Tool -**This guide is designed for teachers, and those who support teachers, to build understanding and experience with Common Core State Standards (CCSS) aligned instruction. The module also includes a review of the three instructional Shifts in mathematics. Within the module, there are activities and discussions based on the Core Actions that will prepare participants to use the Instructional Practice Guide. (Student Achievement Partners for Achieve the Core)**Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice**—This website provides video examples of the standards for mathematical practice at different grade levels.

**Numberless Word Problems – “Help Kids Understand Math Problems: Take Away The Numbers and the Question!”**provides a detailed scaffolded approach to presenting word problems that gets students thinking before they ever have numbers or a question to act on. This differentiated instructional strategy starts off in a nonthreatening way – with no numbers – and lets students slow down, notice and wonder, grapple with the relationships in problems, and plan a solution path before they ever have to solve anything.(teachingchannel.org)**Math Vocabulary: Math Vocabulary Cards**- Based on the work of Robert J. Marzano, Ph.D.,*Building Academic Vocabulary*, ASCD, the Math Vocabulary Cards were to designed to provide visual aids, opportunities for students to create their own “kid-friendly” definitions and drawings, and a model of graphics and definitions for a classroom’s Math Word Wall. Multiple exposures can add to students’’ knowledge through suggested activities, games, writing and discussions using grade level vocabulary terms. Dual Immersion Cards are also provided in Spanish.
