The title is usually the first thing a reader sees, so titles, while giving a hint to the story, also need to grab the readers interest. Students will also look at a rubric for this trait and evaluate student samples.
Math  This week, students will explore strategies for subtracting double digit numbers using base ten blocks, expanded form and a number line.
