Disciplinary Literacy Lesson Library
The Disciplinary Literacy Lesson Library provides support for teachers as they learn and implement disciplinary literacy strategies in Geometry and Measurement.
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.

CCSS 8.G.2


In this lesson, students will work in groups to make predictions about the relationship between congruency and transformations and to prove congruency through a sequence of transformations.

CCSS 6.G.1
CCSS 6.G.2 CCSS 6.G.4 

Students should have previously explored how to determine: 1) area of rectangles, parallelograms, triangles, and trapezoids; 2) volume of rectangular prisms, cubes, and triangular prisms; and 3) surface area of cubes, rectangular prisms, and square pyramids. This lesson is intended as a culmination of applying previous knowledge and assessing student understanding. Students work in groups to determine which figure in each row is the Odd One Out. The Odd One Out may be the only one in the row that is correct or it may be the only one in the row that is incorrect. Students may deconstruct figures into its parts, apply known formulas, and/or use notes and tablets to research needed information to assist with determining the Odd One Out.
