Guided Math Strategies: Setting Objectives and Providing Feedback

Posted on February 21, 2013. Filed under: Common Core, Guided math | Tags: , , , |

One of Marzano’s 9 effective strategies is Setting Objectives and Providing Feedback.  You want to set the objectives in a collaborative way.  Of course you should let the students know what the standards are but they should be a part of setting goals and monitoring their personal progress towards those goals.  Be sure to use “I can” statements so the Core is Comprehensible to your students.

Successful Strategies for Guided Math Groups and More

 Marzano (2001) states that Nonlinguistic Representations are one of the 9 major instructional strategies that advance student achievement.  We need to be sure to spend time teaching nonlinguistically, using visual imagery and bodily-kinestheic experiences.  As you progress through a CRA Framework of concrete, pictorial, and then abstract students should act things out, use physical models and draw pictures.

 Concept maps, thinking maps, and brainstorm webs are all examples of teaching with nonlinguistic representations. See my Thinking Maps Pinterest board for examples.

Be sure to have your students work with nonlinguistic representations in math workstations as well as use this strategy during guided math groups.
