Overview


Tanglers, Too! will help your students develop problem-solving skills while developing their ability to work cooperatively. In addition to enhancing reading comprehension, Tanglers help reduce teacher-dependent behavior by teaching students to rely on their own abilities and understandings as well as those of their classmates. What is a Tangler? Many of the Tanglers are logic problems, and some are math word problems. Clues to the answer are on cards that are distributed to the group of 3–6 students. No one student has enough information to solve the puzzle alone. Students must share their information and work cooperatively to reach a solution.
