  • Asking teachers to increase attention given to problem solving does not ensure a focus on fostering student understanding. We engage teachers in analyzing types of problems (as identified in the grades K–2 Common Core State Standards) and then address implications on classroom practice, introducing practical ways to engage students in thinking critically when solving problems.
