## Successful Strategies for Guided Math Groups: Nonlinguistic Representations

Marzano (2001) found that nonlinguistic strategies move student achievement. This is exactly aligned with the mathematical practices – using models, representations, sketches, drawings, diagrams and pictures to name a few. Make sure that in each unit of study you use these items. Here are a few examples to get you started (there are lots more on my Pinterest boards).

## 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.

** **** Here are some other resources:**

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