As I’ve been working in classrooms and setting up Math Workshop, I have found that many students are having difficulty with the release of responsibility. It’s tough for them to be given a difficult problem that they are expected to solve with absolutely no teacher help.
While this is actually a good thing, as it’s teaching them skills that they desperately need, it can be difficult for those students who struggle to read and/or struggle in Math in general.
I created this organizer to help with this problem, based on the research I did about struggling Math students. Hope this is helpful to you.
