I’m teaching Order of Operations to my 6th graders today. In preparation, I printed out Sarah’s Order of Operations posters .

I also created an advance organizer for my students. According to Marzano’s research, the use of advance organizers can produce significant gains in student outcomes (see Classroom Instruction That Works ). I made the organizer a Flow Map (one of the Thinking Maps ).
