It’s interesting to me that they’ve found MP2, MP7 and MP8 to be deeper and more challenging:  (“Reason abstractly and qualitatively,”  “Look for and make use of structures,” “Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.”)

I’m imagining the very different experience this would provide a student — tho’ it could be terrifying.   3 reads… “First read:   understand the context.”  You share and record – **all** you are doing is saying what the problem is about.   My students who’ve learned to find the numbers and do to them whatever we learned to do in this lesson… it’s really hard to get them to do that.   I’ll ask a question about the context and they’ll answer “Should I divide?”

… and then to reflect on *doing that* so that you can remember to do that later?   Teach that?   Yea 😉   No, not have a quiz on what the 3 reads are.   (yea, I’m the third viewer 🙂

My little brain is flexing with this, as well as actually writing supports for the Illustrative Mathematics curriculum.  Yes, there’s a learning curve for that too but we have lots of really good examples *and* other really awesome thinkers.  I’m **really** glad that this is Spring Break because I’ve spent good hours immersed in the curriculum and the information, riding around it and learning the nooks and crannies.   It’s reminiscent of writing those phonics stories for K-12 —  I go out on the bicycle and things process and ideas happen.
