Thank you so much for visiting our website! We are in the middle of a site redesign which will be completed on March 15th. You will still be able to access this website until April 10th, at which point http://math.newvisions.org will redirect you to our new curriculum website.
If you want to continue accessing this website, you will be able to do so until June 30th of this year.
Reengagement means going back to a familiar problem or task and looking at it again in different ways, with a new lens, or going deeper into the mathematics. This is often done by showing examples of student work and providing prompts to help students think about the mathematical ideas differently. This guide provides more information on how to design reengagement lessons for your students which you can use at any time during a unit where you think it will be helpful for students to revisit a specific mathematical idea before moving on.
Reengagement is not the same as reteaching. The following table compares the two practices.
RETEACHING 
REENGAGEMENT 
• Address basic skills that are missing. 
• Revisit student thinking. 
• Teach the unit again. 
• Address conceptual understanding. 
• Do the same or similar problems over. 
• Examine task from different perspective. 
• Practice more to make sure student learn the procedures 
• Critique student approaches/solutions to make connections. 
• Clarify mathematical ideas and/or concepts 

• Offer opportunities to understand and explore different strategies 

• Help move students from specific answers to generalizations for certain types of problems 

• Confront student misconceptions 

• Models qualities or characteristics of desired performance 
• Provide specific feedback to students on their work
