Disciplinary Literacy Lesson Library
The Disciplinary Literacy Lesson Library provides support for teachers as they learn and implement disciplinary literacy strategies in Expressions, Equations, and Inequalities.
All lessons in the library have been classroom tested by participating teachers in the IQMS research project or by IQMS Support Specialists. Additional lessons and other resources, such as professional development modules and other tools, will be added to the virtual library throughout the project.

Expressions, Equations, and Inequalities
CCSS 8.EE.1


In this lesson, students will work in pairs to examine patterns in products to make conjectures about general rules for the properties of exponents and test their rule on sample problems to test the validity. Students will share their conjectures with the class and use dialogue to come to agreement on the properties of exponents.

7.EE.3


In this lesson, students will use Socratic Seminar to discuss an article about Scientific Notation and will learn to convert numbers in standard form to scientific notation.

8.EE.7


In this lesson, students will use focused listing to activate their knowledge about “identity” and then brainstorm strategies for solving equations. Students will summarize their learning by writing Proof Paragraphs for given equations.
