Teaching STEM proved to be very time consuming last year and I love the [Exemplars] sample on breathing because the student gets to investigate the real-life situation instead of just watching!!
Exemplars ... has solved the puzzle of how to find tasks that align to the standards. This resource is easy to navigate and enables me to differentiate instruction at the touch of a button ... The Preliminary Planning Sheets support me with teaching the standards of problem solving while choosing an Exemplar that is "just the right fit" academically for my students.
