When teaching model drawing, the steps for model drawing are essential. It’s important to give students multiple opportunities to learn the steps and develop the muscle memory of the steps. It’s also important to have consistent delivery of the steps.
One way to do this is to create a model drawing bookmark for students to constantly refer to as they are working their model drawing problems. To make it accessible, consider laminating the book mark, putting one hole in the top of the bookmark and attaching the bookmark via a ribbon to the back of their model drawing and/or math journal. This way, the bookmark can be stored in the back of their journal or used to mark the page they’re currently working on, but can also be pulled out the placed side by side with the math story (aka “word problem”) their working on. Students can use it to help develop their model drawing muscle memory AND assessment tool to ensure they’re meeting all the criteria for model drawing such as including labels and including their answer statement.
