Students can work through this with a partner or individually. Make sure students understand they are responsible for all of the information (avoid jigsawing sections).

The first section is informational and workable. Teacher can lead as a whole group or have students work individually as teacher leads through packet.

The teacher will start at the beginning of the How Much Am I Getting Paid Teacher Aid and work through the material with the whole group, allowing students to complete the blanks/questions in their versions of the packet.

Where applicable, according to packet instructions, the teacher should pause and allow students to practice/make calculations on their own, and then review the correct answers and how each correct answer was calculated with the group as a whole.

Once the entire packet has been completed, review the information with the students to ensure that no questions or concerns exist regarding the material.
