Reflection: Rigor Pick, Write & Solve Subtraction - Section 2: Direct Instruction


Higher level questioning pushes kids to reach deeper into the understanding of a concept. Rigor is an important part of Common Core standards. Digging into their own thinking, and articulating it, is necessary for kids if they are to move on to more challenging concepts involving subtraction.

Asking kids how and why subtraction works the way it does prompts them to really consider what subtraction is and how it works. Choose open ended questions that require explanations rather than yes or no answers or a simple number answer solving the problem.

Create opportunities for dialogue and discussion. Allow for debate even, when possible. Kids should challenge each other as well as themselves in a safe and rigorous learning environment.
