What an incredible visual reminder to the real power and protection of scripture study. Idea: Print this out for each YW (if you have a small class). Put in an envelope. Seal it. Then, tell all the YW to open their envelope at the same time. Study what they see. (3 mins). Look for as many details as they can and then write what they think this picture is expressing and why. What detail of this picture affected them the most? by maggie

The 3 read protocol is a useful strategy to teach students to think about what word problems are asking. It is a close read of a math story. Students analyze what is happening in a word problem. This strategy is highly effective for ELLs because of the visuals and analysis. The students create their own questions, so it is very engaging! by suzanne
