    VIDEO EXAMPLESReadingThis Math example frames quadratics and applies it to the real world. The text is taken from the Prentice Hall Algebra I Foundations book beginning p.569. It can be easily adapted to fit any math text from textbooks. It forces the students to read the math text and understand how to solve problems with quadratics.

    MATH ANTICIPATION GUIDES
    This article describes benefits and specific considerations for supporting reading in mathematics and discuss the use of anticipation guides as tools to actively and critically engage students in reading, mathematical reasoning, and comprehension of mathematics text. Figure 1 is an example of an Algebra anticipation guide. Figure 2 is the text that students read after the anticipation guide.

    {Geometry Similar and Congruent Anticipation Guide created by Renee Smith.docx}
    This math anticipation guide will get students to make predictions about similar and congruent figures. The Anticipation Guide is important because it challenges students to think about similar and congruent figures before actually learning about them. Students may know more than they think they know, or they may become more curious about the topic before starting the lesson. After using the Anticipation Guide, students will be focused on the main ideas in this geometry lesson, and as they are learning, they may go back and think about how they answered the Anticipation Guide questions.

    I wanted to share a resource that I created with a group of amazing teachers at my school. I'm Math 3, Christine Sheffler teaches Biology, and Yilmaz Yoruk teaches English 10 - but we're all teaching lessons from the same text on climate change and polar ice melt.
    This one topic actually fits all of our standards (regression and comparing functions for math, argumentation for English, and human effect on environment for biology), and it should be interesting for the kids (more interesting than regular math functions, anyway!) This can be a politically charged, controversial debate too - but the ability to see both sides is key for the students.

    Rob Leichner from West Meck promotes literacy in Math III through interdisciplinary planning. In ana email while sharing his resources with CMS teachers, he wrote:

    If you want to check out the text, you can see it here: http://www.wunderground.com/climate/SeaIce.asp?MR=1
    I cut a little bit of it out to highlight what I wanted for the math lesson, and you have that freedom also (obviously) - but it's basically the same information. All of our lesson plans, alignment, and activities can be found here: https://www.oercommons.org/groups/taccl-working-group/231/666/
    It would be really cool to find a team of teachers to do this, but if you want to do it yourself for your class, that will work too. If you are interested in other ways to incorporate text into lessons, whether just math or cross-curricular, let me know (robert.leichner@cms.k12.nc.us)! I'd love to work with you and get some ideas from you. Please let me know if you're thinking about using this next year or you have any questions - I'm curious to see how it goes, how people modify it, and how the students respond. Thanks so much, hope it helps!
