Build story problem solving sills with Directed and Guided audio lessons that model when and how to use a skill or strategy, then support students as they apply it to a new problem. Kits encourage higher-order thinking with 14 different problem-solving skills and strategies each. Students follow 4 steps each time: understand the problem, devise a plan, carry out the plan and look back. Use multi-sensory, independent learning kits for individual or center-based learning. Great for preparing for challenging story problems on standardized tests. Aligned with NCTM Standards.
