Teaching Suggestions:

1. Print the notes (or assign the slides) page and practice problems page on half sheets of paper for students to tape into composition books. This makes a great reference tool. Introduce the skill by going over the example problem and then guide the students through the sample problems, allowing students to demonstrate the problem on an interactive whiteboard.

(Printable: You can pull the PDF up on an interactive screen and annotate over it with programs such as Promethean’s ActivInspire. You can also use a document camera to project a student’s notebook)

2. Allow students to work independently on one of the practice pages (or Slides) and check on their progress.

3. Check for understanding/mastery either at the beginning or end of class with an exit ticket.

4. If time allows, use a second day to reinforce the skill with the second practice page (or Slides) and exit ticket before moving on to the next skill.

5. When all of the mini-lessons have been taught, assess for mastery using the quiz.
