WICOR stands for Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization and Reading. You will hear about these strategies in all of your classes, as they represent the ways we should be learning every day. Below you will find some examples of each strategy, and beneath that are ones that we will specifically use in math. This is in no way a complete list, but it will give you some idea of what the WICOR strategies are, and how we'll use them in class.
Recognize WICOR strategies and be able to explain how they benefit students within the learning process.
Read the posters below, and on the WICOR tab of the foldable, answer the following two questions:
1. How do WICOR strategies benefit students within the learning process?
2. What activities or strategies have you done before in school that would fall into each of the 5 categories? List at least 2 for each letter.
3. What Focused Note-Taking Strategies and WICOR strategies have we used during this activity?
