**36. I WONDER . . . WORD PROBLEMS!**(Feedback, Questioning, Discussion)

**Description:**This math strategy helps students to better understand the process of solving word problems.

**Application:**Use this to bring meaning to skill-oriented subjects like math.

**Process:**Determine problems for homework. Instruct students to write down questions they had while they were working on a problem that was difficult to solve. Ask them to circle the question that helped them solve the problem. When students return to class, randomly ask students to share their findings and remind them that there are many ways to find an answer; they just need to keep looking!
