I could give my class a worksheet with what appears to be very easy to understand directions. And it seems like half the class is raising their hand saying they're confused... they don't get it... they don't know what to do. How do you solve this? I understand a big chunk could be the concept that I need to teach them the skill of carefully reading and comprehending directions... but how can I tackle that task? And in the mean time what do you do at the very moment they are asking?
